Possible Dates for Hedging Courses
We will be running courses this year between March and October 2016 and 2017. See the Apprentice page for details on building and restoring Cornish Hedges.
New Formers for Cornish Hedges
We now have both large and small custom-made hedging formers available in the shop. These are used to get the correct profile for your Cornish Hedge.
Apprentices Wanted
If you want to learn more about the care and upkeep of Cornish Hedges please consider joining us as an apprentice.
Cornish Hedgers
The Guild of Cornish Hedgers
One of the charms of Cornwall's interesting landscape is in its diverse pattern of hedges around the small fields and along the narrow winding lanes.

Nearly all are within sight of a right-of-way, and therefore can be seen by most people every day.

These hedges are culturally and environmentally important to Cornwall and therefore need the protection that they deserve.


Notice Board

Robin Menneer

news

We are sorry to announce the loss of our Founder, Robin Menneer, who died on 6th March 2018, peacefully at home aged 85. Robin's dedication to Cornwall's historic hedges after his retirement led to his founding the Guild of Cornish Hedgers in 2002, along with the Guild's first Steward Patrick Semmens. Robin's tireless work and enthusiasm raised public awareness, and secured the Heritage Lottery grant facilitating successful training of new and qualified Cornish hedgers. He devoted his own time to writing down the body of knowledge on Cornish hedges, at a time when the craft was endangered by the passing of the last generation of old traditional hedgers. He set up the Cornish Hedges Library website at cornishhedges.co.uk to make the information freely available. In 2013 he was made a Bard of the Cornish Gorsedh, in recognition of his achievements in the cause of Cornish hedging. Robin was a rare and fine personality, a genuine Cornish eccentric, commanding much respect and love, and he will be very sadly missed.

Another very rewarding series of shows for 2017. A numerous number of good contracts were gained through out Cornwall, and Cornish hedging is coming back into its own helped a great deal by HLF funding. Hope also to see some newer members at the 2018 shows. Thanks to all who helped in 2017
