is 'as it goes' something that thatchers say?
The second is a 'spar' coated thatch - where they basically fix the thatch onto the old coat and don't strip anything from the roof.
On the third pic the thatcher is dressing a half-hip gable.
Hope that helps.
I love that phrase
Billy Mill roundabout n. Climactic point of masturbation. From the end of A1058 coast road near Newcastle. As in “My mum walked in just as I was coming up to the Billy Mill roundabout”.
Before I was looking up the serial killer Billy Mill.
I was getting a bit paranoid!
that's a bit sexy, you knowing all that thatching stuff
Its probably the opposite of sexy, though.
