A group of volunteers attending a scything class with Gatwick Greenspace Partnership, and expert Mark Allery, on fields adjacent to Gatwick Airport. All of us learning the graceful art of using a scythe safely, and to encourage wild flowers. Mark Allery works as a Woodsman, Bodger (polelathe turner) and Scythesman and has been teaching these specialist skills to beginners for many years. An example of Peening (the process of working a metal’s surface to improve its material properties, usually by mechanical means, such as hammer blows).
