Long Straw Thatch
Long Straw

Commonly used locally, Long Straw is no longer than straw that is combed out, but the term comes from the fact you can see lengths of straw down the roof with both heads and butts showing.

Combed Wheat Reed
Combed Wheat Reed

Combed Wheat Reed is applied with all the butts facing down the roof so you only see the tips and it has a much neater look. It also has no spar pattern at the bottom.


Plain wrap over ridges are traditional in Wiltshire, whilst the block ridge, either plain or with pattern, originates from mainly Water Reed areas. Whatever your thatched property requires, I can help.
