A massive job, but easier now that it used to be. I suppose they use such small hedge trimmers to make a neat job of it. Thought they would use bigger ones.

Ditto - I always felt (and still do) it could tell a good few stories of what it's seen.

This is my favourite yew hedge at Powis. So organic-looking.
