Downton Abbey upstairs bees
The deliberately pointless structure has acquired a use — it’s now home to a colony of honeybees.
They have found a cavity in the south-facing wall and taken up residence — definitely Upstairs rather than Downstairs honeybees.
I noticed these only because I stopped underneath the arch to admire the view yesterday and heard a rather familiar sound.
Does anyone know of other odd but appropriate locations for bees? There must be lots.
