You can watch the earthworks progress on our timelapse camera.

At Ladies Pond, the work is on schedule for the arrival of the new building next week. The main concrete pour was a success and there is one final smaller pour tomorrow.

Over on the Hampstead Chain, the earthworks at Catchpit continue to progress well with clay being brought in from Pryor’s Field.



The new sheet-piles at Mixed Pond are awaiting timber capping. A fence will be added to this capping, and then a grassy earth bund build on the causeway side (right hand side in picture below).
