Following on from AMEC‘s decision to base their business at Lingfield Point, we’re now calling all bees! We’ve a traditional skep beehive ‘to let’ and it’s ready for viewings.
Lingfield Point already has its own bee colony, providing plenty of honey for the busy business park. But Christian Barnes, the artist behind the Futurescope series of giant art installations at Lingfield Point, wanted to take that one step further.
Christian enlisted the help of Colin Hinde, Lingfield Point’s beekeeper, to match the impressive installation currently gracing the side of one of the site’s buildings by creating a skep to sit alongside the more modern hives.
At present a selection of tiered hives are used at Lingfield Point. This way the bees can take advantage of their natural tendency and build their colonies vertically. The skep beehive is more bell-shaped – and an iconic image to many in the bee world.
The beautiful rural property is available for occupancy immediately. . . Made from straw and suitable for a family of worker bees, this accommodation has beautiful surroundings and a host of lovely neighbours. The landlords are on hand for any maintenance issues and are able to help with the honey-making process.
With this beee-autiful estate agent’s description the hive is bound to be snapped up quickly, just like Lingfield Point’s award-winning offices, with scores of successful businesses and more than 2,000 people now based at the park.
Eddie Humphries, Estate Manager, said: “We’re sure the bees will be swarming in as soon as they hear about our fantastic facilities, accessibility and our very own concierge service that makes Lingfield Point such a great place to be based.”
The 107 acre site is home to hundreds of bees and is contributing to the fight to stop bee numbers from declining.
Lingfield Point has been producing its own honey for several years now – and a new crop is ready to be harvested.
Can’t wait for Colin latest harvest – yum!
