Stoney Cove

Stoney Cove view

Stoney Cove has some of the best inland dive facilities in the UK. It offers varying depths from the initial 3m shelf to 40m at the hydro box. There is a well stocked dive shop, and you can get refills on-site and hire kit if necessary.

Stoney is an old stone quarry and so visibility can be quite good, there are over 25 sunken objects to explore, including a variety of boats, a Wessex helicopter, Nautilus submarine and a Viscount Aircraft Cockpit. You can also see pike, perch and crayfish around the lake.
