Members of a North Somerset conservation group tried their hands at an ancient countryside craft at the weekend.
The Yatton and Congresbury Wildlife Action Group (YACWAG) regularly hosts activities across the district, with projects ranging from wildlife protection to bird monitoring.
On Saturday YACWAG members took to Cadbury Hill, on the border of Yatton and Congresbury, to complete a spot of hedge-laying.
Hedge-laying is a historic rural craft which sees participants manually laying back hedges in countryside locations.
It is thought maintaining hedges in this way creates livestock-proof barriers and weather protection for crops and wildlife, alongside rejuvenating existing hedgerows.
