Progress: 10 months in

At Model Boating Pond, the excavated area is now almost ready for clay to be moved down from the hillside to raise the new dam.

The wooden structure in the middle of the above photograph is the housing of what was perhaps the original valve chamber.

At Ladies Pond some demolition work took place earlier this week. The old building is now down and the slab is being demolished.

The new building is currently under construction (in a factory in Yorkshire). The below photo shows the frame of the new changing facility which will be pre-fabricated and then transported to the Heath in several pieces.

The path at Stock Pond is nearly complete, with only one layer of tar and chip left to apply.

The desilting work has now been completed at Mixed Pond. In the picture below, you can see a silt survey taking place by boat.

The silt is being stored temporarily on the Sports Pitch area

During the desilting work, the machine that was used was often snared with lost swimming costumes and underwear. You can see the remains in the below picture.
