David Farmer (Reed Thatcher) of and his wife Debbie Farman seen here today on one of the warmest days so far this summer, at work together on the roof of one of Norfolk's most beautiful Churches.
The view of St Mary St Mary, Burgh-next-Aylsham across the river from the south is one of the finest of any churches in East Anglia, This is one church you should visit if you can.
David is the owner of A.E Farman & Son - Reed Thatchers who have been in the reed thatching business for over 200 years. It is wonderful to see how these traditional skills of thatching being kept alive with locally sourced reeds.
