Hi guys/girls

My names Lee and Im approaching the end of my first year of beekeeping out on the outskirts of Sheffield in the UK. Been a tough year with the weather and weak colony I bought second hand but things are on the up!

Im also a design student, concentrating on the redesign of some of the beekeeping equipment used by commercial/sideliners as graduation project which prompted me to keep bees in the first place.

Is there any commercial/sideliners out there that could help me out with some research with few photos?

Much appreciated!
