I've heard of these mentioned but never seen one or seen any plans on how to make one.  Has anyone got any experience or knowledge of this type of hive?

The fact that I've never heard of it doesn't surprise me.  On the other hand, the fact that Google doesn't seem to have heard of it, I find really strange.

Sure you didn't mean a Glen Hive?

The guy texted me the name, definately Gale.  It holds thirteen UK national frames.  I tried Google before I posted and DC's site and drew the same blank.

Gale was one of the larger bee farmers in this country in the 30's and 40's, I do know that some of these guys used old ammo boxes as brood chambers that held around 15 standard frames, they also used the soup kitchen trays for feeding bees.
This might be of help to you.
