Countryside Day 2024


The Annual Hedge laying competition

Our annual hedgelaying competition is held each year on the third Sunday in February by kind permission of local land owners, and has become an established and well supported event in the Society’s calendar.

We have both Open and Amateur classes with all competitors using the Mendip/North Somerset Style. It is a great opportunity for the experienced to showcase their skills and the inexperienced to practice and have-ago.

Vintage Tractor Run 

Watch as convoy of fantastic vintage tractors take to the lanes of Somerset.

Land Rover Meet 

Land Rover fanatics from near and far are welcome to take part in our annual Land Rover meet where they can chat to other like minded enthusiasts. 

Family Fun Activities 

There's plenty to do and see at the Countryside Day including Clay Pigeon Shooting & Have a go Gun Dog Scurry. The event is free entry, parking and catering are on site. 

Gaining in popularity

This ancient craft is currently experiencing resurgence in interest and popularity; a machine cannot replicate a highly skilled hedgelayer.

Cash prizes for both classes are awarded and cutting money paid to all entrants.
