A hidden hive in Wanstead

The roof of La Bakerie on Wanstead High Street has a secret: a beehive which has started producing honey for the cafe’s customers as well as helping to pollinate Wanstead’s gardens.

Owner Fabien Ecuvillon has harvested the first batch of honey and is now serving it on granola. As the hive grows the hope is that the honey could be sold in jars.
