Photographer's Note

Hedge laying, a very English and Welsh affair. (here Joy and Niel are putting in the stakes and they volunteer for the National Trust and gain experience) I am not to sure if this is done elsewhere in the world, this type of work dates back at least a 500 years and is done to make a live hedge very thick to keep stock, like sheep and cattle in.
You cut diagnally through the stem up to 3/4 the way through and bend it over then you stake it so it does not fall over. Bindings can be added but we chose not to do that here as that costs more nmoney and time. Result a very thich green hedge which is also good for the wildlife especially birds that like to nest in the thicket.
