Hedge Laying NT

Event Details

This event is running from 9 March 2022 until 16 March 2022. It is next occurring on 9th March 2022 09:45

  • Venue: Itchen field
  • Upcoming Dates:

Two weeks of hedge laying preparation at Hinton Ampner along the Kilmeston road in the Itchen Field where we worked in November 2019.  Geoff to lead the task.

This is a challenging hedge, dense with coppiced hazel regrowth and a little blackthorn that has been flail cut several times. On this visit we will do extensive thinning to leave a line of growth that can be layed on a visit in the autumn. Probably no chainsaw work, all hand cutting.

Some folks will be working in the road so please make sure you bring your high viz vest.

Most folks should park in the layby on the main road.  Only cars bringing heavy equipment or mobility-impaired members may park in Greys Farm Road opposite the work site. We’ll probably bring hand tools in our cars rather than the tool trailer.
