    45m ... but, I personally, couldn't imagine anything more soul destroying than International travelling pool diving

    If you need the depth at a 'shore' site, Wastwater is 70m. Or Lochaline Wall, which is 100m+ in the sea and diveable in all but the worst conditions. No fetch so the swell dies away in a couple of hours.

    Or Malta, which is closer than both.

    If anyone would like any further details about Dorothea, which can be dived as a guest of an existing member (subject to meeting certain criteria), let me know. If you want ideas about accomodation our existing member base are likely to have recommendations that I can broker for interested divers.

    Teaching is also feasible (again subject to meeting certain criteria) and I can furnish interested parties with the relevant information.

    Usage and membership has increased recently, which can only be seen as positive in the wake of the unfortunate removal of another inland resource from the UK.

    Can't promise Instagram as yet for your commemoration videos, but You Tube is an option.

    Canít wait for the weather to pick up and go use the club rib to wet our ocean divers !
    and there is a £5 admin fee just to change your booked date,...

    Stoney? Milking the situation? Surely not.

    In other news; water, wet, fire, hot.

    Fascinating stuff. No doubt some dickhead squaddies with an RoV and a nuke will have to be stopped at some point...
    We give £350m a week to the EU. Let's give it to Dido Harding instead.

    Its a complete cut and paste of what they told the local council about NDAC - I suspect they are on a grand tour of the UK on the hunt for development funding. The one in Belgium and the one in Germany were both built in depressed areas with lots of lovely grant money so there are precedents.

    Are they still going? Must be about 10 years now. At least NDAC doesn't need much civils doing so the budget might actually be realistic this time.
