Puddling Clay (Half Tonne - Approx)
Puddling clay comes from a local source and is used by British Waterways for lining all there canals, it comes already hydrated and ready to use. The puddling clay is like putty which can be applied manually or mechanically.
We recommend a depth of 200 – 300mm depending on the size of the pool you are forming of puddling clay to form a impermeable barrier to keep your water in the pool.
In years gone by ponds have been formed using sheep fenced on the the area using the action of the sheeps feet tredging round and round which has puddled the clay in to position. Nowadays large rolling machines are used but the rollers are still called sheeps feet.
