Making Hazel Hurdles ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

At the Yorkshire Arboretum`s `Wild About Wood` fair Clive Smith gives us a step-by-step demonstration on how to produce hurdles from lengths of pliable hazel wood. Clive expertly shows us how the fibrous quality of hazel makes it the ideal wood to work with, as it can be rolled, bent and tucked into position to ensure a strong, secure hurdle.

Really informative. We have a number of hazel trees and now I finally have something to do with the wood!

That was fantastic….nice to know how to fold them round without breaking.

Wonderful video….
I've seen them made on a video, about medieval wattle and daub buildings.
But this shows perfectly, how to tie the branches in with each other..

Dublin: Baile Atha Cliath. the Town of the Hurdled Ford.
So I imagine they made a hurdled fence like this and laid it on the Liffey, tied at both ends, and you could walk over it. (with a certain amount of sloshing). The river is not wide where they placed it (at the site now of the Father Matthew Bridge).
