New hedgerow planted to protect ancient woodland in Sheffield

Have your say

Members of Sheffield Landscape Trust joined forces with a team of local volunteers to plant 500 metres of hedgerow in Owlthorpe.

The idea behind the new hedgerow, which is made up of hawthorn, hazel, holly and guelder rose, is to form a barrier between the new Owlthorpe housing development and the ancient woodland in the

Ochre Dyke Corridor.

Funding for the project was obtained by the Owlthorpe Local and Natural History Group after submitting a successful bid to Beighton councillors, who represent the Sheffield suburb.
