A small derelict church becomes an apiary for honeybees on the North York Moors.

thats cool.  better a warning than an extermination.  + it might help keep vandals out?   :-D
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Great photo.  It could easily be a free, silent, no maintenance, unseen guard dog that could show itself in a nasty way at any point.  To a nonbeekeeper it's kinda like a Bogey man.  It's a magnet to a beekeeper though.  If there is a hive, even if it collapses the smells will probably bring in another one the next spring, thus continuing the guarding of the derelict church.

This sign could replace the "Beware of Dogs" sign with the "Beware of Bees". Set up a hive to where the intruder will disturb the bees while trespassing. African farmers are using bees to keep elephants away from their crops. Why not use the same method for intruders?
