The Manor House has now reopened! Come and explore the new storytelling of 1,000 years of history.

Hedge laying

Join us to learn the rural craft of hedge laying (in the Midlands style) and create habitats for birds, mammals and insects! 

Work with an experienced local specialist to continue our hedge laying project at Cogges Manor Farm and help this community wildlife hub flourish. No experience is necessary, and all tools and equipment will be provided. Tuition will include: tool use, preparing the hedge, laying, staking and binding.  Bring gloves if you have them, plus stout boots and suitable clothes. 

Two dates available: choose from 12th October or 20th November (6 places available on each)
