Went to Eccy Delph on Sunday 15th.

6 degrees c. I didn't notice that it was any deeper than the last time I was there (June/July). I also expected better vis than last time with it being winter, but it seemed worse.

Addition of ropes between features was helpful (especially since the armuored car reportedly has a fairly strong effect on compasses).

Second dive was "Telegraph pole and car", except that there was no car. Apparently it's not very heavy and people like to move it around.

On the plus side - Friendly folks, close to home, and at least I was diving instead of watching telly or doing ******* diy.

<font color='#728FCE'>I've not been to Eccy since last year, it is not that bad a place & quite good for inital trainees. Also not that far from home.

So come on YD divers support the place and it could improve.

Yea right, watch me!!

This place will eventualy have potential if it is managed right and they spend some money on it, but I have visited four times in the last two years that it has supposedly been getting developed and it is still just a mucky puddle.

I have to drive by it to go to Capernwray and will continue to do so.
