A fifteenth century Midlothian chapel, undergoing a £13 million preservation effort. No photos allowed inside, I was disappointed to find. Recently upon dismantling a rooftop pinnacle a 600 year old beehive was found. The bees entered the hive through a hike in a carved flower rated by the chapel’s master stone masons. The hives were never intended to be a source of honey. There are more than 120 “green man” carvings in the chapel. Amazing place.
