14 men and one woman have been competing in the Friends of the Lake District's hedge laying competition in Grayrigg, South Cumbria.

They have six and a half hours to build a section of hedge of six metres for amateurs to nine metres for professionals. Winning is based on quality rather than speed.

The Friends of the Lake District hopes challenges like this will keep traditional farming methods alive.
