The history of the besom

There has been a long tradition of besom making here in Hampshire as well as in the neighbouring countys of Sussex and Surrey.

Traditionally made from either birch or heather the heads are combined with a handle usually made from hazel or ash.

Also know as witches brooms the humble besom has changed little since the dark ages, the only real change in that time has been the use of wire in place of the hazel or bramble to hold the birch head togeather.

Until the advent of synthetic alternatives traditional British or the grass brooms common both in europe and America were the only option.
