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.”

Very sad. This is where the scuba unit for Gloucestershire scouts runs it's open water sessions. Next nearest is either Chepstow or Vobster Quay down in Somerset

Devastated, it was only Friday I spoke to Maggie and they were hoping to reopen soon. Sad times ☹
