    Sorry only weekends for me :)

    By the way that may be of interest for you: there is a new quarry opening in Kent. It’s called St Andrew’s lake (https://www.standrewsdiving.co.uk/). Starting from February, I plan to go there as it is only a 45 mins drive from home.

    That'll be some serious competition for Holborough and Leybourne, if it matches up on the blurb on the website.
    Mind you, I am doubtful about "beautiful blue water"... unless it is from the suspended chalk particles, and the Chilterns are about a hunder miles away, so good luck on "slow-filtering crystal clear water" from there.

    On the positive side, if they do achieve thirty metres, than that could be useful. I've driven past the site ofetn enough, and if its the quarry I'm thinking of, then it looks as though it has a bit more depth than the others in that area.The problem wil be the same as all the South-Eastern sites, though: chalk/clay base leading to rubbish visibility.

    And by the way, sorry I won't be able to make 26th or 12th either.

    So I went to St Andrews, the water is pretty clear. I suspect it is due to the chalk like you said.

    Seems like nobody wants to explore the shallow silt of Wraysbury in 5C water, I wonder why lol :)

    I understand that you require a buddy but posting 6 times, & hijacking other people’s posts, is possibly OTT. Why not start by introducing yourself in the introductions area first?

    Tim, still up for diving?

    Tim, diving today, still up for it?

    Maybe if I add a 2cool to my name I can be really popular also.

    I wouldn't count on it, it hasn't worked for me, everyone thinks I'm a dick.

    If you ever wanted to do NDAC or even Wraysbury then I'd meet up but I don't go to Stoney.
