·                Sustainable South Brent’s Hedges and Woodland Group - ‘The Steepers’

We undertake conservation projects like hedge laying and woodland coppicing, as well as harvesting wood fuel, in and around South Brent. We enjoy the traditional skills and satisfaction of working outdoors together, while doing our bit to maintain diverse and healthy wildlife habitats. Our practical site work takes place over the autumn and winter to avoid disturbance to wildlife, while in the summer we have a wider programme of walks, visits, firewood processing, tool maintenance and outreach work. Newcomers are always welcome: we provide training and tools and equipment. Contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are currently working out a new programme of activities for the summer and will publicise this shortly.
