Rampant Raspberry Help...

Hi all...

I have two really overgrown raspberry bushes that have never been pruned properly and have been grown as a hedge....they are now out of control and all the new shoots are on the outside leaving old bare leafless wood internally...

I hope the photos can be of some assistance ...I'm sorry they aren't clearer....

What I have resembles a very dense hedge....maybe 8 ft high and 8 ft across....15 ft long

I want to prune it hard and am wondering if I were to cut back into the really old branches would I get new shoots next year or be left with a hedge that would take years to recover.?.

Not sure what type of raspberry it is ....it's never produced any berries because of numerous light trimmings throughout the year....

Any help would be very welcome...Thank you...
