Right, this is not mine but a local retiring beekeeper after 60 years.
He was a Thornes agent and all the kit was from them, he had a clear out of the older stuff 3 years ago and this is his last lot.
Location is 10 miles north of Kings lynn, collection only. Job lot only.
Message me for contact details, he is an old chap that doesn't want messing around, no offers, no haggling. Talk to him, inspect it and pay and collect, he would love it to be that simple, please.

Thanks for all the interest. All sold.
Despite the no haggling please that he asked for, he did and all went for a grand, including lots of Thornes stock that he wanted clearing out from the back of his garage.
Thanks again.

Well ... someone got an absolute steal .. the bees alone were worth that !
 
I bought the bees and equipment
I gave him the asking price of £1.300 as the Warming Cabinet was not available
I did missed the post on here and bought it off FB after Pete D posted it on there as well
A couple of others had said they would buy it but surprisingly didn't
I am well pleased with it and agree the price was a bargain especially as most of the spare brood boxes were fitted with new frames and foundation
Thanks Pete for sending me the other Petes contact details
