There is something so
Quintessentially English about old thatched cottages.
Most of the buildings with thatch
Pre-date the 1800s and a good thatched roof
Can last up to fifty years.
Looks as if this cottage needs a new roof though!
The new Globe Theatre
(A modern reconstruction of Shakespeare’s Globe)
Is the only building in London with a thatched roof.
However, I prefer my thatched buildings
Slumbering among wildflowers, don’t you?
