Old thatched cottage.  Fuji F10
24th January 2014

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.
