Thatched properties

The counties of Dorset and Wiltshire have thousands of thatched homes – although there is no increased risk of fire within thatched properties, the impact of a fire is far greater.

Thatch fires are typically attended by in excess of 50 firefighters, at least eight appliances and often for over 24 hours. The National Society of Master Thatchers estimate that the average cost of a thatch fire is in excess of £45,000.

A range of fire prevention tips can be found in our free downloadable advice leaflet, Your Thatched Home.

There is also a useful downloadable leaflet from the Thatch Advice Centre.

Further advice can also be found on the National Society of Master Thatchers website.
