I stumbled across approx 15 hives on Brown Clee today. They didnt look like they had been attended to in some time and some in poor condition, rotton roofs, holes in supers being used as entrances, some boxes not stacked securely and no activity at some hives. They had been checked in may/june as some had dates scribbled on them. Supers and QX still on. Just wondered if they had been abandoned or still on someones to do list.
