Cromhall Quarry is a 55 acre former limestone quarry with 9.5 acres of water and is situated only 1.5 miles from J14 of the M5. The slightly undulating rock bottom of the lake gives an ideal training depth of 17 metres. It slopes upwards to the former haul road entry, giving a superb shallow beach area allowing easy access and egress for entry-level dive trainees and rescue training.
There are many reasons why the Cromhall Quarry site is unique. One being that the site is home to EU protected Great Crested Newts and Cromhall Quarry is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) containing many fossils, including the Cromhall dinosaur.
