"This year’s event is being kindly sponsored by the Lancelyn Green family . This is a multi-species hedge which forms the boundary between the formal area of the hall and the surrounding agriculture area. It was planted in 1993 to celebrate the first mention of the Lancelyn’s in the year 1093 with a woody species planted for each century that they have been in residence. An ideal beginners hedge."
