Part of the set of 18 recesses, known as bee boles, built into a brick wall to hold beehives.
The wall to the east of the main block of the Stone House, Barnett’s Hill, faces south and must have been warm and sunny during the summer. Each of the recesses would have held a straw skep, or beehive. The photo was taken in 1965 when the house was being renovated. Most of the full range can be seen in KL160.
