This is a rare opportunity to see traditional New Forest skills in practice. A special demonstration by local hedgelaying expert Andrew Birnie as he finishes laying a hedge in Godshill, Fordingbridge.

Watch Andrew at work, join his hourly presentations and ask questions to NFLAS and New Forest National Park Authority rangers and staff to find out why it is important to manage hedges this way.

Location: the hedge is located alongside a public footpath (Godshill. 7115) and can be accessed between Godshill Village Hall and the Fighting Cocks Pub. Signs will be out on the day. Parking is at the Fighting Cocks Pub.

The event continues on from the work started by participants on a hedgelaying training course run by the New Forest Land Advice Service as part of the Rural Skills project, part of the HLF Our Past, Our Future landscape partnership scheme, which is led by the New Forest National Park Authority and 10 key partners.
