Scything at National Trust Gibside

At the peak of last week’s heatwave, on the hottest day of the year (so far), I was at Gibside in Co Durham teaching a Learn to Scythe course for the National Trust ranger team.

Apart from trying not to melt in the heat, we had a brilliant day scything the wildflower meadow as well as looking at how to use the scythes to manage steep banks and rougher vegetation. The scenery and company were worth the long journey and high temperatures.
