The Bee Yard will comprise of two distinct areas, linked by a large archway. Each area will be in the shape of a honeybee hive cell.
Artisan makers selling honeybee-based products, including a bakery and yes, a candlestick maker, will be star features, as will other crafts using products derived from the hive, such as mead making, beeswax wraps and cosmetics.
At the heart of the development and as a consistent theme, visible through the site, will be our love and respect for the Honeybee.
The Honeybee Research Centre will establish significant research areas into the parasites and diseases that affect the honeybee, as well as exploring new hive and equipment design as well as an industry field-test facility.
