This was a late 'summer activity' on Sunday, 12 October 2014 by kind permission of Eric Spencer at Turnditch. As you can see from the photos it was a lovely summery day.
Hedgelaying is a country craft which has been practiced for hundreds of years but it is just as relevant today as it always has been.
Although agriculture has seen vast technological advances there is still no machine which can replicate the work of the Hedge-layer.
The National Hedgelaying Society is the only conservation organisation dedicated to maintaining the traditional skills of hedgerow management.
