About Me         Clive Leeke

I started my business, Hedgecraft, in 1988 after spending my formative years as an agricultural contractor, grubbing out hedges and filling in ditches and ponds, before realising that this practice was not sustainable. I’d always had an interest in traditional crafts, so began to seek out the old craftsmen who could still lay hedges, make hurdles and puddle ponds in the traditional ways.

So here we are now, all these years later, training dozens of students each year in these long forgotten skills.
