Hedge Laying

Just a few pictures from this weeks two day work party:

On Tuesday & Wednesday we were hedge laying at Howside Farm over looking Ennerdale Water.  Tuesday was glorious but we didn’t have the camera, we just took this one picture on the phone showing the snow-capped fells.IMG_0287

Wednesday we had the camera, this is the hedge we had laid the day before:



Most of it is done by hand, but when we come across a larger tree a little help is required from the chainsawDSCF4856

And it is done and the view is restored


We had two bonfires burning all the brashDSCF4858


It was hard work and our muscles certainly knew we had been upto something, but it is very rewarding to see you are making a difference.
