Thank you to everyone who joined us for the fascinating ‘Hedge Hoardings’ walking tour around Arbury and King’s Hedges on Sunday.
The tour was led by forager and local historian Cab Davidson, who generously shared his wealth of knowledge about the area, from the location of Roman Roads to previous medicinal uses of plants for worming dogs! The walk took in the ward’s oldest remaining stretch of hedgerow, traced the path of ghost-hedges and ended in the centre of King’s Hedges where a new work of public art is being developed.
Artist Hermione Spriggs, who has been appointed to create an artwork for the site, shared her research and creative proposals that will form part of the new homes currently being built. The site hoardings were displaying images of the ‘living’ hedges Hermione has created with the pupils from Grove Primary School as part of this project.
