I started thatching as an apprentice in the Waveney Valley 15 years ago and began my business in 2001.

In 2007, I gained the prestigious Master Thatcher title – awarded by East Anglia Master Thatchers Association (EAMTA) following assessment of my work.

Although predominantly a Suffolk thatcher, I am also available for work throughout Norfolk and Essex, and for large projects in other parts of the UK.

I work mainly with water reed (also known as Norfolk reed) and long straw, the area's traditional thatching materials. As much as possible, I source reed from the Norfolk Broads – and to ensure a constant supply of quality straw I grow it myself using traditional methods.
