The Neverending hedge


John Brooker, a 75 year old retiree from Norfolk, appears to have decided that his garden was seriously lacking in the fictional creature department, because he has turned his 150 foot long hedge into an impressive dragon. Supposedly influenced by the time he spent in Malaysia, it reminds me of Falkor from The Neverending Story. I really really want to climb onto it’s back and pretend I’m going on an epic adventure around fantasia. Mmm.. How long will it take for me to get to Norfolk?

Working on it for a couple of days every two/ three weeks, it took Brooker 13 years to create, and it needs constant maintenance. His wife, Pippa, helps him out occasionally, but only on the design front, the trimming is all him – he has been through four electric trimmers.
