Talking about beehives - does anyone know of someone who makes Warre hives locally? I've been told that a Mike Millward does - but I can't track him down.

What do you mean by modified? I have a few bee hives in a wild meadow I'll take some photos. Also on the BBC website they show you how to make several very habitable homes for bees out of everyday materials.

I'm looking for the old 'Joanah' type hives, made from grey alder of course, does anyone know of any going cheap? I'm planning a 'super hive', involving over 100 colonies on a spare bit of land here in Lewes.

I'm planning to put one on my roof, has anyone had any experience of putting a hive on top of a 3 story building?

Bees seeem to be flavour of the month. Is it certain that there is sufficient pollen to cater for all the new hives being planned or will the new swarms be competing with the existing ones for resources (increasing flight lengths, energy used etc)?

Do any of these local beekeepers sell their honey? I've heard that local honey can really help hayfever, and would like to get my hands on some.

There are hives all round this part of Sussex owned by Paynes who sell their honey in a large number of small local shops. Otherwise there is their web site: www.paynesbeefarm.co.uk
Bees can travel a few miles to collect pollen so there is a chance it'll work for you.

I would like to keep bees if it can be low (ish) maintenance...more to support their livelihood than for honey although I like hone. Am a complete novice but would like to meet up with someone/people for practical advice on types of hives, best location in my garden etc. I am based in Lewes.,
