Field Visit (28 August 2014)

NL 96841 45721 From what can be understood of the listing description and accompanying notes, there was, at the time of listing in 1981, two thatched roofs at this site. The 19th century cottage is listed as having ‘piended thatched roofs’, and the listing notes read ‘original dwelling renovated and re-roofed in substantially traditional fashion in 1981. Adjoining byre demolished and now thatched dwelling in substantially traditional style built on site.’ Exactly which other roof was thatched at this time is unclear, however, now only the roof to the south cottage is thatched, in marram with a continuous marram ridge. The entire roof has been netted, which has been weighted down with stones and thin ropes just above the wallhead, openings and around the chimney stack to the south gable. Wooden boards have been installed above the door and window openings.
