We've just taken delivery of a beautiful new observation hive, which can be viewed from the observation area of the Maryam Centre link.

The hive was custom made by Nick Buttle of Peak Hives, and allows our beekeeper to create multiple configurations as each season progresses. It has viewing panels at every level on two sides, which will give a wonderful window into the workings of the hive.

It's too late this year to make changes, so the new hive will hopefully be deployed next Spring.
