incorporating two sets
of Bee Boles, Beckside
Stone boundary wall, incorporating two sets of bee boles. C19.
Rubble Lakeland stone, brought to courses, with irregular rough coping
stones. The wall at its south-west end incorporates a set of five bee
boles, comprising five rectangular chambers, subdivided by shallow
upright stones standing on flat padstones. Spanning the chambers are
two long lintol stones, which carry further wall courses and coping
stones above. The front faces of the upright stones have been drilled
to house fixtures by which the hives could be secured from theft.
Further to the north-east a further two boles, of larger size, with
a single upright divider stone carry irregular lintol stones.
