In an unfortunate turn of events, the dive centre at Cromhall Quarry has announced that it will be closing ‘with immediate effect’ with no current plans to reopen.
In a statement on their website, the team at the quarry said they weren’t aware of any future plans for the 9.5 acre facility, a popular site for local scuba divers to practice for their open water qualifications.
“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.”
