Bee-friendly sites around Leighton Buzzard

South Beds FOE look after nineteen bee-friendly sites around Leighton Buzzard, some in partnership with Leighton-Linslade Town Council as part of our joint ‘Keep the Buzz in Leighton Buzzard’ campaign, while some are on land belonging to Central Beds Council.

We use mainly UK native wild flowers, but a couple of the sites include garden flowers as well, and the Linslade Memorial Gardens blog includes a list of the flowers on our sites that bees visit most often.

There are more details about each site below, and there’s a map of all them here.
