The Association comprises an enthusiastic group of people working and living on the Blackdown Hills who are dedicated to preserving the craft of hedgelaying and other related skills in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The aim of the Association is to do their utmost to preserve the rural skills associated with hedgerows.

BHHA Woodfair

We run training courses in hedgelaying, attend local fairs and agricultural shows with a stand and demonstrations, and staging the "Skills of the Hills" annual event.

The members of the BHHA regularly take part in hedgelaying competitions both in the South West and nationally.

BHHA Hedgelaying Course

Training Courses

One of our main activities during the winter season is running courses teaching the Devon style of hedgelaying. The BHHA course is rightly celebrated as being one of the most "hands-on" courses you can go on with one experienced tutor to each pair of students laying their own section of hedge.

For more details and a schedule of next season's courses see the hedgelaying course pages.
