The hedge now laid

A bit more preparation of the hedge the evening before.

Then the team set to on the Sunday morning.

Stakes and hetherings from the coppice coupe.  (Hetherings are the long thin poles that are twisted along the top of the stakes to hold the laid hedge in place)

Andy and Peter hammering the stakes in.

Got it done by lunch time.

 Tiring work

Let's hope it grows.  Several hawthorn and hazel plants were also planted to thicken up the hedge.

And here below is the view from the field side - before .  .  .

.  .  .  after a bit more thinning  .  .  .

.  .  .  and at the end of the day.
