Cromhall Diving Centre closed for good

-

The British diving fraternity has lost a valuable inland training site with the news that Cromhall Diving Centre, located in South Gloucestershire, has closed for good.

The inland site, which has a maximum depth of 17m, a floating pontoon for easy entry/exit and various sunken attractions, including an ex-Royal Navy gun shield, two shipping containers, an aircraft cockpit, several cabin cruisers and even a couple of red phone boxes, was a popular training location, or somewhere to fettle new gear.

The sad news about the closure was delivered via a letter from dive centre owners Simon and Maggie on the Cromhall Diving Centre website:

“Dear friends,

For the quarry and our clients, 2020 has been a bad year with the floods at the start of the year followed by the tragedy of Covid-19 with lockdown preventing access to outdoor facilities.

Sadly, while we were preparing to re-open, we have received some more bad news.

We have received formal notice that means that the quarry will close with immediate effect and will not re-open.

We are not aware of any future plans for the facility.

Over the past 14 years, you have been wonderful people to be associated with and it has always been a great pleasure to see you enjoying the site and we will miss you all.

Please, continue to dive and swim safely wherever you choose and we hope to see you on the surface at some time or another.”
