any one know of any flooded quaries in lancashire, that are not being used by a diving organisation, that i could use for training, they dont have to be that deep, 10m will do.

About the no solo stuff steve, the owner of eccy (John) is not a diver. You can do what you want more or less. Accompanied or not.
I know of some solo'ers that use eccy on a regular basis.
He'll also fill anything which i've found handy when my cyls have just gone out of test.

Not really, he'll probably employ a manager who knows what they're doing and that will be that.
I think its more due to ignorance than irresponsibility.

There's also 'Devil's Bridge' over the River Lune, not far at all from the Cape! 8 metres if you're lucky and, dependent of the recent rainfall off the hills, either an easy and chilled drift with the flow - or a crazy drift-dive where you take your life in your hands due to the run-off induced current! YeeHaaw!

As Malcolm said,

there are plenty of lakes in the Lake District - try Wastwater, pick a depth and fill yer boots.
