About Traditional hedge-laying

Learn the traditional skill of hedge-laying with experienced rangers.

Come and learn the traditional skill of hedge-laying in the Snake and Derwent Valleys and help look after these crucial wildlife corridors. You will use traditional hand tools under the guidance of National Trust rangers. No previous experience is needed but be prepared for variable weather and rough terrain which can make the work physically demanding.
