    For anyone interested in doing this course or similar. Do it. I went on a two day hedgelaying course in 1986. With me it paid dividends times many. I gained rented access to ancient woodlands and coppice for a yearly peppercorn rent of 6 per chain. Allowing me to live and work from those woods. Having attained recognised training. I became a approved contractor for district and county councils. Any conservation financial grant assistance that was approved for farmers and landowners. Would be accompanied by a list of approved contractors. So the work came to me. Clients excepted that I would also live on site (in their fields and woods) in vehicles, inc horse and bowtop, while the work was carried out. 100 Investment in knowledge, pays the highest interest and comes with some of the best park ups with benefits.

    Between '92 and '95ish I used to dry stone wall for a living, that morphed into more formal stone work and then landscaping, I drive by some of my walls at times, even 20 years later i want to stop and rebuild parts animals have knocked down, at least i hope it wasn't something i did wrong, you feel kinda possessive towards them.

    Not much call for coppicing in my part of the world, but I have always wanted to learn the skill.

    Sounds a great weekend.

    Peeps should go for it, real skills like these need to be shared to the greatest number people.
