Dodson Brothers Win Best Thatched House Award
Dodson Brothers Thatchers has won the coveted Best Thatched House Award for 2015!
The winning project was located at the property of Mr and Mrs Inglis from Clavering.
The Mill End Dairy Farm has a new thatched roof completed in a 3-month long effort and the finished result bagged Dodson Brothers their 6th award from the National Society of Master Thatchers.
From October to December last year, Dodson Brothers worked tirelessly to restore the thatched roof at the Inglis’ property with employees Iain Wallace, Michael Walton, Todd Zellars, Paul Brasnett and Ross Pammenter.
In 2011 Dodson Brothers Thatchers won first place in the Best Thatched House awards and this is now the sixth time that they have bagged the number 1 spot. Stuart Dodson, grandson of the original founder of the company, is extremely proud to have been recognised by the industry and says; “Because this award is given by thatchers to thatchers, it really shows that we are at the top of our game. Because of the size of our company, we are able to take on bigger and more complex jobs and give them the proper time and care that they deserve.”
No strangers to the limelight, Dodson Brothers Thatchers have also featured on BBC One’s Countryfile as they restored a roof with the help of presenter Matt Baker.
The company covers a wide area, including Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Lincolnshire, Rutland, Huntingdon, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Essex, although they have also taken enquiries from as far as field as Holland, America and even Australia!
