Meanwhile next door, another piece of history unfolds..Big Jim bought his house many years ago, before the council re-roofed these 1930s houses. He still has, for another couple of weeks, the original felt roof tiles. He has been saving for re-roofing,not easy on a farm labourer's wages.
The jackdaws and starlings are a nuisance here, getting in through the slightest gap in a roof. Before we moved in our landlord had our loft cleared of nesting material...nine large black bin-bags full....
We think he is in the wrong job..roofer....steeplejack?
