Thatch and Thatching - Sustaining a Tradition - Northamptonshire.

Approx 10 Pages. Text and images.

The word thatch is an Old English word meaning
’to cover’. Its first known use was during the 14th
century and over time the word has developed to
mean an organic covering. Thatch is one of our
oldest construction techniques and has been
used in Britain for many centuries, with
archaeologists finding evidence of buildings with
straw roof coverings that date as far back as
500BC.

 

 

Plenty of interesting information. Smile
