Hedges and dry stone walls are key features in the Forest of Bowland landscape. As well as acting as stock boundaries and providing shelter they also make great habitats for wildlife. Laying hedges and maintaining walls to keep them stock-proof and in top condition is a real skill so, if you'd like to have a go yourself, don't miss our latest training and volunteering opportunities:
