I almost wish I hadn't njoined in this one!
In the days when thieving footpads were abroad (in
this country) the coaching roads were protected by a
ditch on either side and a high hedge.
Whoever built and maintained the road must have dug
the ditch


Anyway you didn't answer the unspoken question:
"What's a Devon Ditch" ?

I'll dig out some bits next week. I bet Charles Mynors
knows . . .

of The

is the boundary), but for lone hedges it
suggests
that they are either
defined in the deeds or are party hedges.

Does anyone know of any commonly accepted
principle or legal precedent
for ascertaining who owns a Devon hedge if no
indication is given on the
deeds?
