Tag Archives: Thatched roof

Don’t forget to look upwards

Even though we spend lots of time travelling on foot we stop every now and then and take in the view.  Sometimes the view is mixed in with just having a rest or a coffee or, more importantly, having an ice cream.

Last week, on my birthday walk, we arrived in the small sleepy coastal village of Walberswick. We stopped.  Well we had just walked 14 miles!  And I’m another year older.  Then, glancing upwards, “hey look at that”.

A newly thatched roof had these characters in place. There are some wonderful craftsmen/women out there still keeping these old trades alive with impressive skills.

And a slightly closer view..
