Dallington Forest – hedgelaying – Brightling, East Sussex – village website
Traditional hedgelaying

In the winter of 2022/2023 a 350 metre 8-year-old hedge on the edge of Dallington Forest was laid for the first time.

The work was carried out over the Christmas and New Year period resulting in a stock-proof boundary, improved habitats for birds, small mammals and invertebrates, and which will increase biodiversity in the surrounding area. The newly-laid hedge will also reinforce and enhance the quality and character of the High Weald landscape, which has a unique ‘mosaic’ field pattern, and it acts as a corridor between wildlife habitats.
