Hedge-layers gather at Shepton Mallet
The Mid-Somerset Agricultural Show’s popular annual Hedge Laying competition takes place on Sunday.
Hedge Laying amateurs and professionals will compete in the ancient art of hedge-laying at Beard Hill Farm on Cannards Grave Road in Shepton Mallet from 10am by kind permission of the Snelgrove family.
The competition, was always a popular feature of the show until it died out more than 30 years ago.
It was successfully revived two years ago by Pilton farmer Roger Noble and a good turn-pout of competitors and spectators are anticipated.
