Diving Stoney Cove, England Inland Dive Site
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.
