Laying a hedge on Pitt Down

Event Details

A Christmas task for HCS central. Task Leader Geoff.

This is a creative challenge to make a new layed hedge where the hedge is only vaguely defined. Arrisings to be burned.

From the car park head downhill to the far left corner of the field to find the work location. Leave no valuables on view in your car.

Allow 5 minutes to walk down the field for briefing at 09.45.

Just inside the northern tree line one can see the line of the Roman road to New Sarum. Its clearly visible camber disturbed only by worms in recent times.

Progress shown in photos below
