Your Trusted Cambridgeshire Thatchers Specialist 

Before NSMT, thatchers have had a collective voice under the Master Thatcher Associations (MTAs), where they were based by county. After several years, the voice expanded nationally to form the first version of the NMST, the National Society of Master Thatchers.

This community of thatchers and apprentices in thatching remains well and alive under NSMT. We are here to direct you and help you locate expert Cambridgeshire thatchers to assist you in what you need. Our goal as a society and community of thatching experts is to assist in the conservation and preservation of remarkable historic properties and sites. 

We understand that the raw materials we use for thatching are prone to fire hazards, and that is precisely why we aim and assist in protecting thatched properties from harm and fires. We provide teaching and education on risk management for your thatched properties, such as how to maintain the use of a chimney or log burner and what warning signs you might be looking for to alert you of a possible fire. 

Finally, we aim to expand our community with apprentice thatching training, with apprentices trained on-site by our own experienced members. Each apprentice is assigned a mentor who will teach them about the health and safety of the site they are working on.  Apprentices are soon to be members of the NSMT, which means they are highly supervised and helped to build their portfolio on the basis of becoming a master thatcher.
