Linking our Landscape

This exciting new initiative, funded by the Green Recovery Challenge Fund, brings together all the expertise of the National Hedgelaying Society and the Dry Stone Walling Association to form a Rural Skills Hub, offering a central point for advice, support, funded training, and signposting to further information on traditional boundaries.


  • Looking for a career with a difference?
  • Want to work in the countryside?
  • Want to broaden your skill set?
  • Why not combine dry stone walling and hedgelaying into a full time, year round career.

We can help with funded training for young people

Advice &

  • One stop shop for advice on training and careers in traditional boundary skills
  • Access to Educational Resources for schools and colleges
  • Environmental benefits of traditional boundaries
