Stripping Thatch on a Lincolnshire Roof



 

 

 

Here are some pictures of us stripping a roof in Lincolnshire where previous Thatchers had put successive coats of thatch on to the layers below creating quite a thickness.  

We stripped all the thatch and fitted fire felt membrane over the rafters and a new 12-14” coat of water reed.  The original thickness of thatch can be seen along the ridge and also at the chimney and the finished roof had the addition of a straw hare sitting on the ridge.
