Hedgelaying in Australia

There are some interesting stories about the way that British settlers took the culture of hedgelaying around the world with them. William Cobbett was a particular advocate of the sturdy British laid hedge, and devoted a lot of energy to trying to persuade Americans of its virtues while he was living there.

Here’s an interesting piece on hedgelaying in Australia, and the Heritage Hawthorn Hedge around Werribee Park Heritage Orchard. Also, some links to other Australian hedgelaying sites at the bottom of the page.
