Hedge Laying: South of England Style ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here at Bentley Woodfair we see members of the South of England Hedge Laying Society (Chris Burchell Collins, Gary Moore and Frank Wright) demonstrate their skill using hazel to lay a hedge in the particular `South of England` style - with its specific use of `binders` to lock the hedge down tightly. They talk us through the traditional tools and techniques they adopt to ensure a permanent, solid, stock-proof, living hedge that will last for hundreds of years. http://sehls.weebly.com/ http://www.bentley.org.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

"Binding", or more particularly if you want to search for it, "hedge binding".

None steel wire divide the farm can be seen but only green shrubs, makes the place wonderfully beautiful.

Did you notice the branch used for a billhook holder on the belt of one of the workers? Amazing use of local material 🙂

Its visible at 3:10

"Lost hundreds of miles of hedges"? Try thousands. Hundreds of thousands.

Maybe he's talking about his small patch in the South East?

What do you mean by notches and how did you do it?
