Hedge-Laying

Date Occurs 03/11/2017 - 05/11/2017
Time Fri - Sun
Age range
Admission £40 Full Board

Try your hand at the traditional rural skill of hedge-laying and know your pleachers from your billhooks! Laid hedges are stock-proof, provide ideal shelter for wildlife and look fantastic too. We'll learn to safely lay the hedge, fix it with hazel sticks and bind the top with willow rods.

*A £1.50 fee will apply to all card transactions online and at Box Office.
