This talk is delivered in partnership with the Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service - join us online as David Rodger delivers this talk, the second in his series of 3.

Hedges are not a common site across the world. Then why does the British Isles contain so many of them?

Discover the history of these wildlife corridors and find out why our countryside is cut into segments by lines of trees. David will give an overview of the history of hedges in Britain, and explain their role, their value and their pride of place as one of the most iconic features of the landscape.

There will also be time to talk about how a hedge can be made and managed including a look into the craft of hedgelaying and the tools and techniques used.

David has amassed thirty years experience of planting, laying and caring for hedges. Join him in a voyage through time and muddy fields. This talk will be followed by, at a later date, a Lincolnshire Experience day which people can choose to get involved in if they wish.

Date: Thursday 23rd September 2021

Time: 7pm start online with Q&A's afterwards
