Cromhall Quarry is back open for divers and open-water swimmers!

As we reported back in May, Cromhall – located in South Gloucestershire – had seemingly closed for good.

The inland site, which has a maximum depth of 17m, featured 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.

Now it is back on the diving map, but due to COVID-19, there are restrictions in place – you have to book your slot in advance, and these are strictly limited.

At the moment, it is open for general diving on a weekend, but dive centres and schools can contact Cromhall Quarry direct to organize to come use the facilities mid-week.

Cromhall-based Southwest Maritime Academy offers a wide range of specialized training courses, but their RYA certifications, which include Powerboat 1 and 2, and VHF short range radio, could be of interest for those who have access to, or own, a RIB.
