Re-thatch – Ashby St Ledgers

We have re-thatched 6 properties in a row, Edwin Lutyens cottages in Ashby. The project took about 4 months to complete. The cottages hadn’t been re-thatched for 50 years. Over the 6 months, we endured some extreme weather conditions (but that’s all part of the job!) The listed properties made the task a bit more complex than a more normal job. We even had school children on trips who watched closely at the process.


Overall they were pleased with the skill and craftsmanship. “In short, a job well done. With our grateful thanks from all the residents to Heart of England Master Thatchers Ltd”
