The hedge is most unusual and impressive but it needs some care and attention and trimming (to its full height?) to make it really impressive. Also no obvious stopping/parking place to allow for proper viewing.

Disappointed as it isn't much of a hedge in my view. Only the very lowest part of it is trimmed and the backside is left alone, and has turned completely into normal trees. I expected a well maintained hedge, but it's just trees planted close...More
