Another vote for Grazon. Add a bit of companion gold if sprayer has a pto or electric pump but companion gold won't go through a hand pump sprayer.
Then dig/flail/burn/or rotorvate the remains depending what fits location.

Had a digger in cleaning up recently. As said it's an easy and clean job with a 360, especially a big one with loads of reach.

Just I have no wire or hedges left now as the whins were holding all up.

Companion gold is an excellent adjuvant I find, as long as its mixed in well. That's all I ever use and likec with glyphosate... not being in a hard water area either.

If you can't burn, diesel and roundup, 4l/ha and a 0.5/ha diesel which helps penetration through waxy spikes. Do it at flowering. Cat d4 with stick rake cleared 10 acres in 7 days for me 20 years ago and dad spent 6 weeks clearing 9 acres with the teleporter in the early 90s. Plenty of ways to skin this particular cat. Keeping on top of regrowth is key, sheep and a dense sward is the answer.
 
Grazon 90 is the stuff, its licenced to do so. Spray in may/ early june will then die off and burn the next spring. (Before the 15th april) too late to burn now. Spray any regrowth when its young and susceptible and you shouldnt have a problem.
What rate do you put Grazon 90 on at using a knapsack as there is Gorse just here and there in the hedge
