Leylandi replacement

Hi all, thanks for replying.
I think they may have been planted approximately 20 plus years ago!!
I am a little nervous about the work required and we may consider bringing in the specialists once I know what we'll replace them with. Your suggestion Chicky is holly hedges and a beech hedge. Presumably slow growers?

Leylandi replacement

We inherited Leylandi at the bottom of our garden.  I can understand why the previous owners planted them - they act as a screen between our property and the one behind us.  However, we maintain our side on a periodic basis but they're becoming unmanageable the other side of our fence. 

Legally they belong to us so we'd like to remove and replace with a suitable plant "screen" which is manageable, maintains it's green leaves all year round and does not become a nuisance.

Can anyone suggest the best way to remove the Leylandi and a recommended replacement plant?
