Hedge Laying: North Somerset Style ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here at The Royal Bath & West Show, experts Clive Bethell and Paul Gulliford of the Wrington and Burrington Hedge Laying Society talk us through their demonstration of the particular `North Somerset` style. They show us the traditional techniques and tools used to create a living, stock-proof hedge that is sensitive to the natural surroundings. We see a display of miniature living hedges representing styles from around the country and witness Clive and Paul`s obvious pride in their particular tradition and society. https://en-gb.facebook.com/wringtonandburringtonhedgingsociety/ http://www.hedgelaying.org.uk/ http://www.bathandwest.com/royal-bath-and-west-show

@ant man2017 I don't have to imagine, I've laid quite a bit of hedge at my home in south Mississippi.

And from what I know about coppice woodland management Sweet Chestnut is the most used species.

@ant man2017 Yes its a lot of work but at no investment if you can grow the material. And also they are great wildlife habitat. As in, songbirds and other small critters can hardly do without small brush like this.

Overheard at the competition: one hedge layer says to the other, "I'll hold the hedge stake, you take up that mallet, and, when I nod my head, hit it!" 5:07
