Conservation of Traditional Thatch

Welcome to the home of the Conservation of Traditional Thatch Group (CoTTG).

Straw thatchingCoTTG is nationwide network of thatchers and conservation professionals who believe in the importance of conserving historic thatch and in supporting traditional thatching techniques and materials.

It aims to engage with the issues surrounding this topic and to work with anyone who owns or is responsible for an historic, thatched building. This includes homeowners, local authorities, grant giving bodies, thatchers and other professionals concerned with the built environment.

Change is inevitable. However, with regard to traditional buildings, conservation is the management of this change in such a way as to maintain the special historic interest and character of the building.
