Thatched Roof Thursday # 8 - Brandon


I have been waiting for ages to photograph this thatched roof in the sunshine.  (Did that at weekend.)  This cottage dates back to about 1640 and is described as a large, light framed Grade II listed cottage.  Pretty big for a cottage, I would say.  I love the detail around the chimney.  Looks as if the thatch has been turned back.  Lovely.



When I was in Rugby yesterday, I got so cold that I got a cold :(.  Hope you all out there are keeping well.  Cheers!

Thatched roofs always seem so romantic, this one particularly so. It's a beautiful cottage. Hope you're feeling better soon!

I enjoy seeing your inventory of thatched roofs. (Chicken soup, warm clothing, early to bed and Vicks Vapo-rub.)

I love your Thatch Thursdays. I think this might be my favorite so far! This is lovely.

Feel better soon.

Another beauty in your Thatched Thursday series! I wish I could join in, but feel I would run out in week zero!! Hoping you get a good rest, feel better, and have a good weekend. (Also, inspired by you and Lulu, I'm looking into ABC Wednesday, as well. Might be fun to have that bit of structure added into the mix...)

Gosh, the pressure is on for next Thursday...:). The thatch today is about 3 houses away from Thatched Roof #1.

I am feeling much better thank you. Taken all of your advice!!!!!

Thank you for your comments!

Petrea, I like this one too...it is so different from the norm.

Hi, This is my house!
I'm glad you all like it.
We had to decide on how to thatch that chimney. The original plan was to add a wooden structure to thatch around it, but the Thatcher came up with this idea. He was brilliant.
Has anyone seen the movie Braveheart? He was the on set thatcher for all the buildings in that film.
That's my claim to fame!

Hi Mark - I drive past your house several times a week. I love it! Fun info about Braveheart :).
