Thatch Finial Fun – Picture Competition

Thatch Finials are the distinctive ornament at the apex of a roof.  The Thatch Advice Centre have noticed a recent upsurge in their use.  Often thought to be the trademark of an individual thatcher, thatch finials are now, more often than not, related to the request of the property owner.   We even know of two pilots requesting the tail of a bye-plane to be made to put on their roof!!

Send us your Thatch Finial Fun pictures
