    Hi, currently in the process of refurbing loft bedrooms and removing existing loose insulation as part of this. I notice that it had been stuffed up into the eves, currently thinking if its o k to leave it there?. Been there for over 20 years. Let me know what you think. Cheers.

    Looks as if you have a load of ventilation in there, no felt under the tiles, lots of air driving in around the tiles, not being stopped by any felt / vapour barriers Etc, as such any benefit of added ventilation at the eaves is not really a requirement.
