Middleton-Cum-Fordley WI - The Thatcher and his Art

Dominic started thatching as an apprentice in the Waveney Valley and began his business in 2001.

In 2007, he gained the prestigious Master Thatcher title – awarded by East Anglia Master Thatchers Association (EAMTA) following assessment of his work.

Dominic works mainly with water reed (also known as Norfolk reed) and long straw, the area’s traditional thatching materials. As much as possible, he sources reed from the Norfolk Broads – and to ensure a constant supply of quality straw he grows it himself using traditional methods.
