Roundhouse Update

It has been a few weeks since much has been added to the Roundhouse down at Hams Hall however the team and myself got a fair bit done on Tuesday despite the heavy rain and the annoying biting insects. With two teams thatching and another team working on the daubed wall it was great to see clear results for our efforts. The higher up we go the slower and trickier it gets as each bundle of reed has to be slid into position without damaging the stems and spaced evenly so that the wooden rods trap the thatch evenly. It may sound straight forward and to some extent it is however in order for it to last a good few years it is necessary to put in the extra effort.
