    Thatch!

    by Jenniflower Written Jun 11, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One might think that many places in Warwickshire have thatch because when one thinks of Stratford-uon-Avon, you think immediately of Anne Hathaway's Cottage, which has stunning thatch on it!

    But this is not the case at all.

    There is only ONE remaining building in Stratford-upon-Avon itself, the Old Thatch Tavern, with thatch, and a few houses scattered here and there on the outskirts of the town, one of them being Anne Hathaway's Cottage.

    Throughout Warwickshire county though, there are plenty of thatch-roofed buildings, and all add to the character of this lovely county.

    The designs on the roofs are intricate and delicate, yet have a certain 'bulk' to them, if that makes sense? The thatch roofs are often quite detailed and an artwork in themselves. Very pleasing to the eye!

    There is plenty of bird-proofing going on to preserve the thatch and architecture from ruin.
