The NYNEHEAD BEE BOWLS

On the brick wall between the church and Nynehead Court there are three curved structures which were bee bowls and were originally open at the back but are now blocked off with brick. These bowls had hives inside them and the wax was used for the altar candles.

So just what lies behind a bee bowl? Behind is Nynehead Court, while up ahead is the south entrance to the church tower.
