The white material is the bentomat clay liner and the green rolls are more rolls of it ready to be put in place. The liner will be covered in 300mm (1ft) of soil as can be seen to the left in this picture. The earth bund in the foreground of the picture is the end of the canal section with the cottage behind me as the photo is taken.

If you look closely at the towpath in the picture, you can see some of the rise and fall in level. We anticipate working on this next weekend (6 and 7 July 2013).
