Another seriously good-looking hedge, this one at Druid’s Cross, near Ashburton. Twenty people attended Saturday’s course and turned about 50 yards of heavily-flailed hedge into a beauty. A lot of hazel and field maple, some hawthorn and dog rose, with a little bit of beech thrown in. The weather was cool but dry early on, turning to heavy mizzle during the afternoon – so a wet(ish) one! Pictured: Garry, Luke and Steven with their exquisite bit of work, Jonathan putting the steepers in, Nick wielding an axe, and Ryan busy in the rain. Mick G took the tools home and dried them all off over a nice cuppa.
Places are being booked very far ahead at the moment so the next hedgelaying course with spaces available is not until 5th of January 2019.
