Best Practice Guidelines

Fences, Gates, Drains

Fences, hedges, gates and drains are all integral features of the historic landscape. Any conservation work must include these items.

Fencing is essential where livestock are in adjacent areas. Browsing stock can do major damage to headstones and grave sites.

Maintenance regimes must include hedges and fencing.

Removal or original fences and gates is not an option.

Reinstatement should be as per original.
