Valdemanco beehives

These beehives were stolen too often and so the villagers move them to a different location every few years. Here it is not on any path and when I chatted with the bar owner later he was a bit put out that I had found them! (The next time I came this way, maybe a couple of months later, they had been moved once more!).

Yes, I was amazed too, Isabel but the bar owner seemed an honest and sincere chap so I had no reason to doubt him!

I know Tresillian House, Peter but didn't know they kept bees, although it doesn't surprise me. So yes, they obv do have enough value to make it worth someone's while to half-inch the hives!
