:dunno: when you say "mudbank" do you mean it's constantly wet ? That would make it much more difficult to recommend a shrub.

Oh it's like a bank of compacted hard mud, not sure the correct term! It's dry generally and hard

Looks like there's a lot of ivy in the hedge by that hole.
If so the ivy weakening the hedge is why the hole is there.
I'd work on removing the ivy from the hedge all the way along then see if you can lay a few branches to encourage them to grow over the hole as the hedge recovers.
