SUNDAY 21st February 2016.
This year we hope to attract visitors! The National Trust will be advertising the event, and running guided walks around the estate. It would be great to have some members willing to talk to the visitors about hedge laying.
This year we are introducing a hand-tool prize. The best work using hand-tools only will win £50 and best of all this prize applies for each Class
This year you have mainly Hazel, it’s reasonably thin, but there is a lot of it. The hedge is on the top of a bank. Because of the volume of material we are reducing the length of individual cants to approx. 7 and 9 yards
It’s the tall hedge next to this year’s ‘Improvers day’ hedge– so have a look while you are there J
ACCESS / PARKING
You can drive to the hedge to drop off tools etc. and parking is a short walk further down the track at the farm, just follow the signs
