The first of 2 visits to this beautiful site in the Kent Downs. On previous visits here, we have been coppicing the hazel hedgerow, using hand tools. In the past , the cut hazel poles have yielded a good source of faggots for on-going river work projects. We'll be continuing on this same hedgerow following the "block" pattern already created, by leaving some habitat for the existing dormice population.
