Christmas Closing – The quarry will close on the afternoon of Sunday 9th December 2018 and re-open on Saturday 13th January 2019

Cromhall Diving Centre

Surface Water Temperature: 14oC at 9 am on 18th May 2018.

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.
