Ben, 

We established where all the hedgerows were in the National Park,
plotted them onto a GIS system. We then printed off maps for each of the
Parishes, it was a then a case of going round all of the local records
offices spending hours at a time comparing the maps. 

A slow laborious task, but quite interesting to see how the landscape
you are working with has, or in most cases, has not changed over the
centuries, some of the maps found date back to the 1500s.

I would agree with you, we did some research here in the Yorkshire 
Dales National Park and found that  67% of our hedgerows (although we 
don't have that many hedgerows as we are predominatley dry stone walls)

met with criterion 5 of the hedgerow regs, ie part of a pre enclosure 
field sytem, (pre 1845).

I've done quite a few hedgerow surveys over the years but i havent found
an easily available source of information on which hedgerows are part of
a pre-enclosure field system (pre 1845).

Do i have to personally go to the local historical records office or is
there somewhere else that this information is held?

Ben


Oh yes I agree that Hoopers Law on ageing hedgerows is not to be
trusted. 
I've just read a wonderfully detailed criticism of it by the landscape
historian Richard Muir. As Bill mentioned you can plant as many woody
species as you wish in a new hedgerow. But it is integral to assessing a
'hedgerow of importance' under the Hedgerow Regulations (1997) and so i
guess we're all stuck with the methodology.
