The new raised dam at Model Boating Pond is really taking shape.
At the moment the dam is stepped up on both sides – this is not the final shape, it is only this way to aid the construction.
Here are some views from on top of the new dam:
The construction of the new path at the south-east corner of the path is well underway.
At the other sites, work is also progressing well.
At Men’s Pond, the aquatic planting is underway and piling began on Wednesday.
Some minor resurfacing took place at Bird Sanctuary last week.
Stone will be rolled into this tarmac so it matches the path surface on either side. This marks the completion of works at Bird Sanctuary.
The spillway at Ladies has now been shaped and is ready for turf to be laid in June.
On the Hampstead Chain, there has been slower progress at Hampstead No. 1 and 2. Both involve complicated structures which have been challenging to build.
At Mixed Bathing, the second half of the causeway is now being prepared for resurfacing.
Finally, at Catchpit, clay is now being placed to raise the dry dam.
