Bee - Observatory

Welcome to the Bee - Observatory website

A new website is currently under construction and in the meantime you will find the essentials below and here:

  1. Open days will commence in May and will be announced here for two weeks in advance, so keep checking this space!
  2. Volunteer mornings continue regularly on Thursday mornings at present, get in touch if you would like to join!

The Bee - Observatory is a honey bee research and development, and public education project.

It is running a honey bee garden on Oakbrook Community Farm, Stroud.

We currently have four hives: two St John Observation Hives, a Log Hive and a National Hive.

More hives are currently prepared for this year to attract swarms.

Watch a lovely video from the Bee - Observatory's beginnings in 2010
