I have heard sometime ago of someone who produces honey in SE1. I think it was somewhere on Tooley Street (Devon Mansions maybe...???). Is this true and if so does anyone know how to get in touch with this person? Thanks!

R&S is a brilliant place, and should appeal to city beekeepers, cider makers and all. I live round the corner so happy to kmeet some familiar or unfamiliar faces.

why would you want to eat honey produced in central london? any food produced in the middle of this city would be toxic and nasty.

I'm guessing it's because it's rumoured to help alleviate hay fever?

I don't think it is made in SE1, but in Coopers on Lower Marsh you can buy London Honey - it's expensive though. I haven't tried it, but it's there.

Beekeeping can help stress and depression, and it's a good workout too ...

There's also The Hive honey shop in Northcote Road, Clapham (SW11?) They have a glass hive inside the shop so you can watch bees being busy! As a suggestion - contact the London Bee Keepers' Association they'll be more than willing to point you in the direction of your nearest keepers. I went to one of the Association's meetings in Wales and came back with several jars of delicious welsh honey and a much wider knowledge of our friendly bees. My parents kept bees in Kent the late 1960's - they've just finished their last jar - it never goes off.
