New Thatch Ridge to 16th Century Cheshire Cottage

P1040086As well as fitting a new ridge to this very old cottage, the 4 barge boards were replaced and the thatch had to be stripped back and renewed so the new boards could be anchored to the rafters. Our thatching team were able to carry out all this work in just over a week. Unusually the only window within the roof is not thatched but has slates instead.
