A roof ridge being rethatched. Apparently it is VERY expensive these days and needs doing every ten years. And the insurance is massive, it being such a fire risk. Yet, if you own a thatched house then you have to replace the thatch with like, them's the rules. No reeds, no clever German plastic straw thatching, just the old fashioned expensive kind.
