The Old Cottage

This small thatched cottage is a Grade 2 listed building which needed a completely new thatched roof. The wooden posts to the perimeter arcade were rotting and we applied for Listed Building consent for the new roof including the construction of two thatched dormer windows tot he rear elevation. We also proposed the construction a brick base to each of the timber posts and new paths around the arcade. The thatching was carried out by an old family firm of thatchers, called Shelley, who have been thatching   int he area for over 100 years.
