About Us

Formed in 2009 Heart of England Ltd quickly established ourselves as the premium thatching company in the East Midlands. From our base here in Leicestershire close to major motorway links we are perfectly suited to take on jobs in all corners of the UK. Predominantly we cover Leicestershire, Rutland, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. However, we have in the past worked on jobs as far afield as Cornwall, Norfolk, Wales and even the Outer Hebrides. We are fully trained to NVQ standard in Water Reed, Combed Wheat Straw and Long Straw. We also have vast experience in ridging with Sedge as well as the more common Straw Ridges.

The company is owned and run by Paul Wareing. Paul has over ten years’ experience in Thatching and served a full five-year apprenticeship. Paul is married with his first child due in Early January.

Michael has recently joined Heart of England after working at his previous employers for 13 years. Please note Michael is an EMPLOYEE and is not a SUB-CONTRACTOR.

In 2013 we had the extreme pleasure of re-thatching a block of 6 cottages in the village of Ashby-St-Ledgers. The cottages were designed by Edwin Lutyen who also designed the Cenotaph at Whitehall.
