We found this fence to be quite fascinating. It's kind of like a basket weave but on a much larger scale. We asked him for any info he had on it and he replied that it appears to be made of willow with hazelnut posts. "Hazel is good for fencing post. Hazelnut was used for thatching straw stacks on farms years ago, 1940 to about 1958, also on thatched cottage roofs for pining the roof shocks (straw) in place. Today plastic pins are used to pin the reeds in place on thatched cottage refurbishments. A lot of Willow is used for bespoke fencing and the big trees are used for cricket bat manufacturing, etc." The fence is located northeast of London in an area known as Norfolk.
We are always looking for "Good Fences" and this one is fascinating and pretty unique. Many thanks to our follower for taking the photos, sending them to us, and then giving us all the info.
