Thatch and Thatching

The craft of the thatcher probably gives more pleasure to people than any other of our natural crafts. Thatching is, nevertheless, a craft most people know nothing about and which is commonly thought to be dying out. This book outlines the history of thatching in Britain from its use as the commonest form of roofing to the present day and explains how the thatcher works with his traditional materials.
