Re: roof leak in london yurt
I live in the U.S. Sorry, I can't help you with U.K. suppliers.

In the interim you might consider ordering a heavy duty 17-18 oz moisture treated canvas tarp for the roof only, from an online tarp supplier like 'mytarps'. Order it a minimum of three feet larger than the rafter length times two, plus the diameter over the roof ring and dome width. No less since canvas shrinks.

To install, drape it over the roof, and make a single fold to snug it to the rafters, and cinch it tight to the walls with the upper rope band. That's what I did. I assure you it is a fast cheap cover that works great. Good luck.

Hey I am SunTime Yurts located in the US we import traditional Mongolian Yurts. Our supplier in Mongolia also works with a Uk company "The Authentic Mongol Yurt Company". Here is there address.

The Authentic Mongolian Yurt Company

Peter is the owner and can probably help you out. You might want to try waxing the leaky part of the canvas. Or Linseed oiling it, but the weather is cold now and it wouldn't dry.
