The book examines key issues in thatched property management and maintenance:Understanding and managing the risk of fire in thatch:- Preventing thatch fires is the biggest single challenge facing the survival of historic thatch, and the number of devastating fires in listed properties continues to increase year by year. Not only is this a large financial burden, it represents an irretrievable loss of heritage.Raw materials supplies:- Measures are being adopted to allow sustainable growth and sourcing of straw varieties and reed, but seventy-five percent of water reed thatch is imported.Modern harvesting and storage methods:- Examines strategies and innovations by landowners to keep the economics of growing thatching straw competitive with land pressures for bio-fuels and other specialist crops.Managing owner expectations:- The current generation of thatch owners has high expectations for the longevity and appearance of their thatch that are not always realistic. The book provides well-researched explanations for the owner of the dynamics of thatch, and how to deal with the most common problems.New buildings and thatch:- A renaissance in thatch popularity has lead to an increase in the number of thatched buildings on new developments. Good design provides an opportunity for modern craftsmen to put their own mark along the thatching time-line and at the same time take out the risks associated with fire.

Mystery crime fiction written in the Golden Age of Murder "Readers will enjoy watching the conflicts that arise between the wary country folk and the cocktail-drinking Londoners invading their habitat. In sum, this is jolly good fun." —Publishers Weekly The Second World War is drawing to a close. Nicholas Vaughan, released from the army after an accident, takes refuge in Devon—renting a thatched cottage in the beautiful countryside at Mallory Fitzjohn. Vaughan sets to work farming the land, rearing geese and renovating the cottage. Hard work and rural peace seem to make this a happy bachelor life. On a nearby farm lives the bored, flirtatious June St Cyres, an exile from London while her husband is a Japanese POW. June's presence attracts fashionable visitors of dubious character, and threatens to spoil Vaughan's prized seclusion. When Little Thatch is destroyed in a blaze, all Vaughan's work goes up in smoke—and Inspector Macdonald is drafted in to uncover a motive for murder.
