The latest images, taken in mid-June, highlight the progress of works going on at Methwold by Fen Group. They show that Fen Group has constructed the main embankment and ditch all the way along the access track, approximately 1km, and are turning to head back northwards. Work is also now progressing on the smaller, flood protection perimeter ditch and bank (top right) after the archaeological study of the buried Neolithic soils has been completed. The water control structures have been constructed and are ready to be installed to regulate the flow of water between the two reedbed compartments and from the reedbed onto the adjacent grassland. The aim is to finish the construction work by the end of October this year. Some reed planting will take place in late summer.
