Getting Hooked on Hedge Laying!


Some very enthusiastic members of the public and National Trust Volunteers did a great job in regenerating one of our hedges at Peppercombe, Horns Cross. Check out the new view to!!!

This was an annual workshop run in conjunction with Devon Hedge Week, the aim of which was to provide a better habitat for wildlife and teach and promote ancient rural skills. It also provides the opportunity to get outdoors and closer to nature, meet new people and of course eat loads of gooey roasted marsh mallows!!!

Thanks to all who wielded their billhooks and crafted their crooks.
