Diving Stoney Cove, England Inland Dive Site
Dive Site: Bedford Van
Depth: 19 to 21 metres (63 feet)
Rating: See Stoney Cove overview
Location: From the Bus Stop entry take a 165 degree bearing and head past the Viscount and expect around a 10 minute slow swim. From the Slipway entry take a 205 to 210 degree bearing and expect a 5 minute slow swim. The Bedford Van is located close to the Wessex Helicopter, so if you are visiting the Wessex make a short swim further along the base of the 20m wall to the east or vice versa if visiting the Bedford Van then pop over to the Wessex.
History & Description: The Bedford Van is (or rather was) a white vehicle sitting upright and facing north towards the base of a 20 metre ridge. Located a short swim to the east of the Wessex helicopter it's missing both its driver and passenger doors and the front wheels are also gone. All glass has been removed as has almost the entire interior including the seats. The steering column and wheel are still in place as is the main body of the dashboard.
