taken 8 years ago, near to Kendal, Cumbria, England

Bee boles in Dowker Lane Car Park
Bee boles in Dowker Lane Car Park
Bee boles are alcoves in a wall where straw bee skeps were placed for protection against the elements.
The examples here were originally in a garden, and the ground level may have been raised when the car park was surfaced. They probably each had a shelf inside (see entry in the Bee Boles Register created by the International Bee Research Association LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) ).
This wall with bee boles, probably dating from the early 19th century, is Grade II listed - see Images of England LinkExternal link .
Tanners Yard is behind the wall.
