Hello y'awl
I've been reading and using the site for ages so I thought I'd better post. Along with Nige waller I've been on a couple of dives with some of you- soup diving in Anglesey in Feb and last june in Stabbs. I try to get wet as much as poss, most of my diving has been at Stoney or Cornwall. On monday (26/04) I will be diving in Capernwray. I've not been there before is it any good ??
See you sometime

Hi Graham, Capernwray diving, erm erm erm, ok its not a bad dive site, my problem is I've been there too much! The viz can get a bit crappy after the weekend, but its not too bad generally. The far side of the quarry is usually clear, over near the gnome garden, there is a new diving bell in that area too, worth a pootle over and keep your eye out for the sturgeon they have put in. I aint seen it yet - but its about 4-6 ft long apparently!

Enjoy ya visit

Hi Graham
Welcome to YD, capern Wray is ok for training dives, kit checks etc but it's a mucky puddle like all inland dive sites and will never be anything like the real thing, diving in the sea. Still the mars rice crispie things in the cafe are great for a total sugar hit!

hope to see you on a yd gig soon

Hey Graham,

Welcome to YD!

Capernwray is ideal for kit and buoyancy checks etc, is well catered for in both the feed and car parking department and is big enough to accommodate a lot of divers, so you can always find a spot out of the way - it's got plenty of attractions in it too by way of wrecks and SCUBA 'objects d'art'.

Get yourself on another dive with us soon - and bring Nige with you!!


Enjoy and dive safe.

Hi Graham

Glad you decided to join in, it's more fun than watching -unless it's a lesbian love fest.

Then its grown at a helluva rate since the new year.  Mark Davies and I saw it over by the gnome garden and I'm sure it was about 8".  Must be all that fish food people keep taking in.

lol I'm only going off what I was told in the shop! On the subject of feeding the fish - make sure you wear gloves, last year I fed em during a warm dive and got my hand bitten!! and yes blood does look green underwater.

thanks chaps (and chapess) it looks like anywhere is good as long as its wet !!
Bren, I'll try and get Nige in but I think he's turning into a girly warm water diver what with all these fancy trips to Cuba and Maldives etc. Freezing cold British water is best, it's character building..
