Milton Keynes is a large town in northern Buckinghamshire and is home to the Blue Lagoon located in Bletchley.
The Blue Lagoon is a nature reserve which is found on the site of a former brickworks. Two pits were excavated and the northern water Eaton flooded in the 1940's.
It got it's name Blue Lagoon because of it's beautiful colour. The lake is approximately 18 metres (59 feet) deep and the water is rich in marine life and exceptionally clear, which has attracted divers to the area. Although the visibility is good the bottom is silty, so the more divers there are the poorer the visibilty might get as the floor gets disturbed. There are some attractions underwater which have been placed there by the local dive clubs. These include two cars, a small aircraft and a bus. There are also six boats and two concrete pipes through which you can swim through. Some of the fish life you may encounter here include pike, perch and roach. Carp and crayfish can also be seen occasionally.

The Dive Dome is a project that was underway in Milton Keynes. This is supposed to be around the main lagoon, contain sea water and be heated to temperatures similar to the Caribbean Sea. It is planned to be complete with wrecks changed on a regular basis as well as an underwater cave system and coral reefs. A wide variety of marine life will be introduced to match what you can see on the reefs in the Caribbean waters. The diving centers in Buckinghamshire offer full training with pool training and open water dives can be done in the inland sites live Stoney Cove in Leicester or during trips organised to the Uk coastline or outside the UK.

Dive clubs are very active and they plan for social events and trips around the UK and overseas. They also organise events that involve both divers and non divers like charity events or any other events aimed at conserving nature.
