Thatch Advice Centre

The Thatch Advice Centre is a free online resource covering ‘all things thatch’

The Thatch Advice Centre is a free online resource covering ‘all things thatch’. We offer an array of information relating to thatched roofs, thatch materials, care of thatch and technical information. Working together with various organisations we share up to date information from Thatch Fire Safety to maintenance or pest control. Our updated Thatch Fire Safety leaflet includes the new Fire Protection Association research into chimneys, woodburners and thatch. Our advice encourages chimney sweeping, checking chimney integrity and care with what and how you burn (fits in well with Burnright campaign). It was created following Forensic Investigation into the causes of thatch fires and the most recent FPA research (driven by Historic England and NFU), to provide current advice on reducing the risks. The Thatch Advice Centre has a bespoke www.thatchdirectory.co.uk of thatch related specialists including chimney sweeps.

“During my research I had come across some forum talk online which was very negative about the cost of the Guild’s training program. I guess it does seem like a lot of money to start with but, like most things, there is more to it than meets the eye and you get a lot more…

“And what do you do?” “I’m a chimney sweep.” “The reactions can be interesting, from amusement to sympathy. But what people don’t often realise is that chimney sweeping is probably one of the best jobs in the world! “I have been sweeping for 7 years and have found it to be a very good way…
