Overgrown hawthorn hedge, Ouseburn.

Ouseburn Farm Fields hedge laying

Introduction to hedge laying with Newcastle City Councils’ Rangers.

The hawthorn hedges around the Farm fields were planted about 10 years ago and have grown out of control, blocking views and not working as hedges.

Come along and try your hand at hedge laying. We’re providing free training in a traditional method of hedgerow management to make a living stock proof barrier against sheep and cattle. All tools, equipment and guidance will be provided, you can come along to one or more of the sessions but booking is essential.

What to bring: Warm clothes suitable for outdoor work (there will be thorns), waterproofs and boots (preferably with a steel toe cap).

Book your place.
