    I know what a noggin is, but would not expect to see one in a roof where it could get wet. I suspect you are referring to a purling.

    So you have seen the rotten noggin yourself? How extensive is the rot?

    Thank you very much for the link explaining the terminology. in my case it is. noggins at the top but lower down where the inner ceiling meet joist. There is a curvy facia which has dropped down and seems that rotten joist, noggins could not hold the weight of plaster/ cement.I think there has been a leak which was not fixed properly.

    A picture is worth a thousand words, or in this case, probably two thousand.
    If you are finding huge gaps between your paragraphs, MSE know about the problem. However, they aren't necessarily doing anything about it. More changes on the way?
