 Week 12

Facing the towpath side7 August - A specialist paviour has almost completed laying the excellently coloured rough surfaced paving stones on the Clarence Road side. This is the finished surface we shall walk on.

Only the coping stones and hand rails and needed to finish the construction on this side.

Facing the towpath side7 August - On the towpath side the stone facing is almost complete, the coping stones are being finished off. The screeding and paving remain to be done next week.

The ground has been landscaped after this picture was taken by back filling almost to the top of the near wall with soil. Nature will very soon re-take this area.
