For progress on hedge see this photo:
To earn one’s living it is necessary to do a chain per day. Half that has taken me a week. The beech hedge is much easier as it was laid about twelve years ago. Now I shall manage it lower and wider and neater than hitherto and probably will never lay it again. Next season, if I find I have become addicted to this endlessly fascinating and satisfying craft, it is possible that I shall run amok over the countryside laying hedges in all directions!
