Hedge Laying Heritage Skills Workshop

10 September @ 10:00 am - 11 September @ 1:00 pm

£80 – £150

The desire to conserve and enhance our heritage hedgerows, undertake new (old) skills and spend time in the outdoors is on the increase. Here’s an exciting opportunity for you to join our hedge laying heritage skills workshop and enjoy an experience that will stay with you for life!

Hedge laying is an ancient skill practised throughout the UK and Europe during the winter. This technique rejuvenates hedgerows by encouraging them to put on new growth, the process also improves the overall structure and strength of a hedge providing protection for crops and wildlife.

This course is open to:

  • anyone over 16 years old
  • individuals or private groups – this workshop is great for a team building activity

Please note that our hedge laying is not suitable for anybody unable to move around on rough ground.

The workshop is delivered by our friendly and experienced hedge layer, David Savory who is level 3 qualified in education and training.
