About Gary

Gary Sugg is a Master Thatcher working out of Bromham in North Wiltshire.

A member of the Wiltshire Master Thatchers' Association, Gary trained in the thatching business from 1974 at which time he completed a five-year apprenticeship and a two year government training scheme for thatchers.

Gary founded his own business in 1998 and now works with all types of thatch, water reed, combed wheat reed, and traditional Wiltshire-style long straw.

Thatch Suppliers

90% of the straw used in Gary's work is supplied by P&S King of Lacock. Mr King has been growing quality thatching straw for a number of years, using an old seed variety called Maris Widgeon.

Being able to work closely with the same supplier over a sustained period of time means Gary can be sure that no artificial fertilizer or chemicals are used in the production of the straw.
