Family history

I’m one of a long line of thatchers – at least six generations, which is as far back as we can trace. Today, the family business is still going strong. As well as me, there’s my cousin Paul, and my Dad has no plans to retire yet.

Here are some old photos of my Great Grandfather (George), Grandfather (Stan) and Father (Steve) at work. In many of the photos you can see three generations of Shelleys thatching together.
