Hedge, St James's Common
It is difficult to date hedges unless there is documentary evidence as to their planting, but one theory is to count the species in a 30 metre stretch and each species counts as a century. Only count older plants and not saplings.

Many of our hedge rows have been lost in recent decades as agricultural practice favoured larger and larger fields to cultivate. There are now grants available to farmers to replant hedgerows, where before, ironically, there were grants to grub them out!
