Ripon’s Rooftop bees thrive

Our rooftop apiary, installed at the end of last summer, has emerged from winter’s changeable weather and burst into life in the spring sunshine. The cathedral is now home to four burgeoning beehives who are ministered to by a variety of volunteer beekeepers, led by Joe Priestley, our Marketing Officer.

It is hoped that the honey will go on sale in the Cathedral Gift Shop from mid-June.

We thought you would enjoy these photos from the hives, courtesy of our Digital Volunteer Co-ordinator Rachael.
