That Year at Cornborough

A beekeeper's journal By Bernard Tinsley

That Year at Cornborough is a description by a member of the Northern Branch of the Devon Beekeeper’s Association of what happened month by month in his own apiary during the year of the Branch’s 75th Anniversary. Each chapter covers both practice and theory, lists the bee-flowers seen in the environs of the apiary each month and is thus a distillation of beekeeping knowledge picket up over a period of thirty years. Though more of a historical record than a bee textbook, it would be a useful seasonal guide for beginners, and those anxious to begin making mead with their honey or wanting to improve their existing techniques would find the section on mead-making particularly useful. The Revd. B. Tinsley (BA. DPS) has kept bees since moving to Devon to be Rector of Newton Tracey in 1961. He is a past Chairman of the Northern Branch of the DBKA, has won prizes at the Branch and Country Shows for his mead and honey-cookery, and some sections of this book are taken from lectures he has given over the years on different aspects of beekeeping.
