Nigel Hallybone has been keeping bees for 8 years. He’s a prison warden and at his last prison he was able to keep them in the grounds – probably the safest bees in the country!  He now has 5 hives in a lovely location, hidden away from view of a public footpath in a wooded clearing.  I loved talking to him about bees and came away with good recommendations and beekeeping advice.  His bees have plenty of tree blossom, sweet chestnut and blackberry to forage on.  My band of tasters thought his honey was very caramelly, though some could also taste spice like ginger and cloves.
