In 2011, as part of our Green Lanes and Veins project, we interviewed 19 farmers and hedge managers to produce an oral history of Devon’s hedges. These interviews are held in major public libraries and with the Devon Archives and Local Studies Service. Sue Wheeler, who led on the oral history, produced two highly informative DVDs which together present the highlights from the interviews, often told in rich Devon accents. These can be viewed online on the YouTube channel of the Devon Hedge Group, or at the bottom of this page.
The first DVD includes a Devon Hedges slide show set to music compiled by Sue Wheeler using Rob Wolton’s photos.
