Hedging project

Class 2 have been given the opportunity to be part of a very special Cornish hedging project this half term.

The whole project is called “Kerdroya”, which means labyrinth in Cornish. The project leaders are working with schools in areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty to repair/start Cornish hedges using traditional techniques and local rocks.

Cornish hedges are made from stone and earth, the earth goes on to provide a habitat for plants and animals and the structure can last for thousands of years.

Class 2 have had a workshop in school and the next stage is to actually work at the hedging site, with an expert Cornish hedge builder. They will each lay a stone so will be leaving a legacy!

Once the project is complete, a labyrinth will be created on Bodmin Moor using stones and techniques from each of the areas.
