Hedge Laying 2017/18 Season

Description of activity: 

During the 2017/18 season nine hedge laying sessions took place involving 38 people with a total of 424m of hedge laid between four sites:

Crook O'Lune, Lancaster - 91m

Fell View Campsite, Scorton - 136m

Higher Gills Farm, Rimington - 115m

Lane Side Farm, West Bradford - 82m

Encouragingly, the sessions attracted a mix of regular volunteers alongside some new faces.  Some people traveled a considerable distance to attend the days, which reflects the value these sessions are given.

The weather was particularly snowy/wet during the early part of 2018, which resulted in a number of sessions being cancelled and re-scheduled.

Poor weather also led to the cancellation of this year's Bowland Hedge Laying Competition, which is organised by the Lancashire and Westmorland Hedge Laying Association.

Activity date:
