Brigsley Cottage.....re-visited....being re-thatched.

I recently posted pictures of the thatched cottage at Brigsley in Lincolnshire.  We passed there again last Sunday and found it's being re-thatched so here are just one or two images of it.
The thatch isn't taken off completely.  The thatcher removes enough to reach a solid base
and then begins to build it up again until complete.



The Wisteria is in full bloom behind the scaffolding. 

 
All pictures taken on my Panasonic TZ60 compact on a day when the lighting could have been better.
