Complete your Open Water, Advanced or Speciality Courses at Stoney Cove in 2010

Why Stoney Cove?
Stoney Cove has a reputation as being the best inland diving site in the UK, and is just two hours away. The water conditions at Stoney are therefore among the best that we can offer you in the UK.
The site was originally a granite quarry. After work had finished at the quarry the natural spring water was allowed to flood the site, and now thousands of divers visit Stoney Cove each year.
In spring As the weather warms, the water temperature slowly rises and the fish reappear from their winter hideouts and start to spawn.
The cost of the trips depends on what course you are completing or how many dives you do and whether you require accommodation.

Stoney Cove History

Stone quarrying first began in Stoney Stanton at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Granite from local quarries was used to repair roads. Around 1850, a railway line was built linking the village with the busy Birmingham to Leicester line.

During the quarry's working life, the spring water was a constant problem. Pumps were used to prevent the quarry from flooding. When all quarrying ceased in 1958, spring water was allowed to flood the quarry workings. Five years later, the flooded quarry had already become popular with local pioneers of diving and waterskiing. The discovery of North Sea oil was important to the development of Stoney Cove. During the 1960s and 1970s, the flooded quarry was used to train commercial divers en route for the North Sea. The facility was also used for developing and testing underwater equipment destined for use in the oil fields.

Since then there has been a continuous programme of improvements which began with a tarmac surface for the waterside parking area. A shower facility and that most important item, a pub, followed soon after. Beneath the new road is a drain system that directs rainwater and silts from the cliffs and banks away from Stoney Cove during storms. This has significantly improved underwater visibility during rainy periods. In 2000 The Stanegarth, the U.K.'s largest inland ship wreck, and the Nautilus submarine were added and have both provided major new attractions.
