The Dartmoor roundhouse has been standing at Lower Merripit Farm, in the heart of the moor, since 2002. By the end of the winter, 2021, it was in need of a new coat of thatch, the third roof since it was built.
This short time-lapse film was created to show the re-thatching process, an ancient craft and skilled task that was completed over three weeks.
This film can also be viewed on our YouTube channel.
