There are 2 Freedom Hives in the grounds of Headington Hill Hall. One is on a tripod next to the garden; the other is in a small section of woodland. Both are now occupied. I don't know whether the colonies found the hives on their own or were brought there.
The Freedom Hive mimics a log hive. It is a perpetual hive without frames. Human access is through the base but there is limited scope to intervene. In the event of them contracting a serious (notifiable) disease the colony would have to be destroyed. In all other situations they will just be left alone.
