You may enjoy unique honey for tea when you visit The Beehive Inn in Castlegate at Grantham in Lincolnshire, UK. The honey comes from the Inn’s “living sign” – a beehive.
Since 1830, the beehive has hung in a tree outside the Inn. Its bees produce an average of 30lbs of honey every year!
A sign on the Inn reads :
” Stop traveller this wondrous sign to explore and say when thou hast view’d it o’er and o’er.
Grantham now two rarities are thine, A lofty steeple and a living sign.”
The lofty steeple is that of St Wulfram’s church, 272ft high, at the end of the street.
