Using a mallet to install hazel spars to fix the straw capper layer to a new ridge.

Welcome To Christopher Kirk Thatching. I have over twenty years experience as a Master Thatcher, and take great pride in my work. I’m a friendly, courteous and careful Thatcher, and my pricing is competitive, especially as I do not charge VAT. I work in north Essex, east Herts and south Cambs, thatching within a practical distance from my home town, Saffron Walden, Essex.

I have wide experience, but I specialise in using Long Straw and Water Reed, the traditional thatching materials of the locations I usually work in – north Essex, south Cambridgeshire and east Hertfordshire.

If you are in the right parts of Essex, Cambridgeshire or Hertfordshire I could be the right thatcher for your roof. You can be sure that you will get a thorough and professional job, contact me for a friendly discussion about your Thatching needs. If you are within twelve miles of Saffron Walden, I am probably the right thatcher for you, get in touch for a thatching quote.
