Bee-friendly sites around Leighton Buzzard

South Beds FOE look after a number of 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 Garden of Remembrance blog includes a list of the flowers on our sites that bees visit most often.

The sites can be found from the map below, or you can pick one from the links at the end.
