The Home of Beekeeping in the Tees Valley


Cleveland Beekeepers Association

We are a registered charity in England (no.1168761) and an area association member of the British Beekeepers’ Association.

We are a thriving, friendly association of beekeepers in the Cleveland, North Yorkshire and County Durham areas of the North East of England, on the northern edge of the North Yorkshire Moors.

Our website name "" derives from the old Ceremonial County of Cleveland, which runs from the North Yorkshire Moors in the South to Hartlepool in the North and West as far as Darlington.
