Thatched roofs are perhaps associated more with the county of Devon than any other part of the country, the 'combed wheat reed' style of straw thatching being the traditional method of the region. Using many interesting archive photographs as well as images of thatchers at work, this book traces the history of thatching in Devon from the earliest times, celebrating the skills and traditions of the craft and exploring some of the most interesting thatched buildings in the county today.
