Hedgelaying and the South Downs

part of The Festival of the Garden at Charleston

Friday 28 Jul 1:30PM
Tickets: Free

A talk from Frank Wright  about the traditional craft of hedgelaying, focussing on the ‘South of England and Sussex’ style. You will find out how this style is used in the local area, particularly across the South Downs and the how the tradition is passed down through generations to ensure that its heritage is not lost.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery, these talks by industry professionals will give great insight into the restoration and conservation of our barns, the Centenary building project and other local crafts relevant to Charleston’s history.
