|Old thatched cottage. Fuji F10|
The old thatched cottage that has had issues with its roof has been sold recently. The workmen have moved in and the roof has started to be 'altered'. I am not sure on whether they are planning to demolish the house and build many shoe boxes on the site, or whether they will repair it; it would be nice if it stayed thatched, but it looks as if it may be a bit beyond just patching up now.
I wonder how old that lower layer of thatch is now on the rafters that have just been exposed; it is not part of the roof they usually replace when rethatching.
