Kerdroya: The Cornish Hedge Community Heritage Project

Community Lecture

You are invited to attend a community lecture on ‘The Humble Cornish Hedge’, presented by Cornwall Council’s Senior Archaeologist Ann Reynolds BA MCIFA. Amongst the oldest human-built structures in the world today still in use today, some Cornish hedges are more than 4,000 years old and are vital nature reserves for pollinators, insects and flowering plants.

Ann will give a fully illustrated talk on Cornish hedges and field patterns, discussing how hedges define and tell the story of our landscape. She will show us how they contribute to local character and distinctiveness, whilst sheltering, feeding, pollinating and protecting.

This community lecture is part of Golden Tree Production’s ‘Kerdroya: Cornish Hedge Community Heritage Project’, celebrating the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)’s Diamond Jubilee. Thanks to Cornwall Council for supporting this informative event.
