About these notes

The purpose of these notes is to give an overview of legal aspects of various situations which may confront the beekeeper. When we came to Stewkley in 1971 I unwittingly brought AFB with one of my hives - the local bee inspector stepped in and the problem was soon cleared. Hopefully, you will not be troubled but if you are, then perhaps these notes may offer some direction. However, you must not rely on these notes but instead take legal advice and rely on that advice alone, please as I am a retired lawyer deep in his dotage - and I have no insurance!
