Dave Symonds repairing a thatched roof
Dave Symonds is a master thatcher who uses materials grown in the valley where he lives on the Devon/Dorset border.
Dave Symonds first became interested in the age old art of thatching as a young boy. He derives most of his living from thatching houses in and around the village of Chideock and is intensely proud that most of the raw materials he uses are grown locally.
