Beekeepers Chris Barnes (right) and Paul Webb on top of Cafe Spice Nameste in the City of London. Where they keep some of their bee hives. The London beekeepers are two of the UK's 44,000 beekeepers. They keep their hives on the roofs of buildings in London's CIty and East End. Paul says of beekeeping that: 'Both Chris and I have a passion for nature. To be able to have that direct relationship with an animal and learn more about its fascinating behaviour whilst still being in the city is very special.'
