While there is a strand of recent landscape history scholarship that can be stridently critical of the hedge as a ‘technology of subjection’, connected invariably with Parliamentary enclosure and proletarianisation, the English hedgerow is also an iconic symbol of rural tranquillity, and mainstay of many conservation and biodiversity agendas, with hedge-laying — – the practice of constructing a living hedge — championed as a key item of rural craft heritage.
