Thatching in progress
The attractive thatched cottage known as Old Sarum View, a landmark in the village. is a designated Grade II listed building.
Toward the end of August, scaffolding was erected around Old Sarum View, and Tom and Will (sons of local Master Thatcher Brian Chalk of Figheldean) began removing layers of the straw thatch. Re-thatching is progressing steadily as our images demonstrate.
