About the event

Join us at Torr quarry in East Cranmore for a one-day hedgelaying course led by professional hedgelayers Chris Claxton and colleagues. With support from the owners of the site, Aggregate Industries, as part of the Mendip Hills Fit for the Future project. Participants will learn about the different techniques and tools used in this traditional management practice, as well as benefits to wildlife, as we work together to lay a section of hedgerow. This is a practical hands-on course so you will need to wear suitable outdoor clothing and sturdy boots which you don’t mind getting mucky. Numbers will be limited to enable social distancing.
