Gower Hedgerow Hub

The Hedgerow Hub works to conserve and protect existing hedgerows and field boundaries, important landscape and biodiversity features, and to re-establish hedgerows along boundaries. The project has maintained 10km of hedgerow by planting, fencing and hedgelaying. 

Working with Gower landowners and volunteers and funded by a range of partners, we have:

  • Delivered 9 training sessions for volunteers and landowners
  • Run 12 hedge maintenance sessions
  • Maintained 9675m of hedgerow by planting/fencing and hedgelaying
  • Completed the GIS digitisation of all field boundaries on Gower
  • Completed a full survey of Gower to establish the location and extent of important historic field systems and boundaries on Gower
  • Surveyed 500m of hedgerow (species)
