Hello and welcome

Hi folks, welcome to my countryside management blog! I will be posting details of what I’m up to on a regular basis so do check here to see what’s keeping me busy. As you may know most of my work is hedgelaying and tree surgery work which is largely winter work, but I’m busy setting up a craft workshop to plug the gap in the rest of the year. I am planning to do a variety of crafts including woodworking, leatherwork, bookbinding and craft printing – quite a range but all with a recurring theme - the use of natural materials to create hand-crafted items. I will be setting up another website to showcase this side of my work in due course but that’s all for the future! Until then if you’re interested in craft items have a look at my wife’s website for fabric-crafts (woolly items and other fibres for knitting etc) - www.woollyshepherd.co.uk. Don’t forget to email me if you want to discuss any aspect of countryside management especially hedgelaying and tree surgery.
