Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: 4m Blockhouse

Depth: 4 to 5 metres (15 feet)

Rating: See Stoney Cove overview

Location: The 4m blockhouse is located on the east wall of the quarry and is best reached by doing a perimeter dive. Entering from either the Bus Stop or closer to its location the Slipway, follow the wall on your left shoulder at a depth of 5 metres. It is 15 - 20 minute slow swim. Alternatively from the Bedford Van or Wessex Helicopter take a 130 degree bearing or from the bus a 120 degree bearing.

History & Description: The 4 metre blockhouse is a small building with a single door on the south side and 2 small square windows on the north and west sides. At a depth of 4 metres it sits on a ledge built close to the side of the quarry wall which drops away to 20 metres below the west facing side of the building.

Loved the block house and saw lots of pike there.
