English Hedgerows (Dover Hill, Cotswolds, England)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

"The reason for saving hedgerows isn't because they have been there forever and ever, but because they clearly and unequivocally enhance the landscape. They are a central part of what makes England England. Without them, it would just be Indiana with steeples." Bill Bryson, Notes from a Small Island (2001).

Being the British nationalist that I am, to see what you write here is heart warming stuff. I love my country for the very reason that England is England. But alas, the farmer will be out sourced to overseas farms, the land will become barron and in fifty years we can enjoy building developments for all the immigrants of the previous years, and their increasing family's. We will also see the end of the Union flag. It will be replaced by a crescent moon! Joy

Dåʀĸ, are you from the UK? Whereabouts? Take heart. With a royal wedding happening on April 29 that your entire former empire will be watching, and your great country hosting the Olympic games, England's 21st Century star now is rising like never before.
