How Do Our Brambly Hedge Carvings Stand Up To The Great British Weather?

Brambly Hedge Wooden Sculptures

A couple of years ago, we created a collection of wooden carvings at Abberton Reservoir based upon the Brambly Hedge book series by Jill Barklem. Hand crafted and painted at out workshop in Norfolk, they formed part of a nature trail, encouraging families to spend more time in the great outdoors – of course that meant they would be at the mercy of the Great British weather. After a couple of years living outside, day and night, we paid a visit to check how they were doing and for the most part, they look as good as they day they left the workshop. Take a look at the photos below to see how they have stood up to the weather over the past couple of years.

  • The Brambly Hedge carvings look as if they have only just been put there Jamie, very impressive. I follow your posts and knowing your father Russell as I do you’re evidently a chip off the old block.

    • Glad you like them – I actually think they look better now that the grass has grown around them and they fit into the natural environment. We do both like making things… just quite different things!
