Double Felt Ridge Thatching in Norfolk







I have never seen this before – a scalloped cut double felt ridge on a Long Straw roof we are re-thatching in Norfolk!  Even the old ridge below was made out of felt and the property is a listed building!

The felt was attached to planks of wood which were fixed to the rafters with 3” wide metal straps and coach bolts which we had to use a hacksaw on – what a ‘lovely’ surprise…..!
