Staffordshire dive guide

Staffordshire is an inland county in England's West Midlands region. This implies that most of the diving activities here are concentrated on training which includes pool training. There's a lot of activities with school offering full fledged courses from beginner to advanced and technical level.

Always dive according to your level of training. Never enter the water without checking with the local dive center for safety, additional information, level required for each dive site and without being accompanied by a professional. All the information provided is purely informative for our readers and shouldn't be used as is to plan your immersion. On completion of a course the schools deliver certification from renowned agencies.

The clubs meet mainly on a weekly basis and are open to all. In good weather grill parties are organised. During the meetings diving, social events and dive travel are discussed and planned. Dive outings are organised to many parts of the UK coast as well as overseas destinations. The Red Sea is a favourite but other places like the Caribbean Islands, Thailand, Galapagos and South America just to name a few feature on the events calendar.

There's an inland site in Staffordshire, The Rez. It's located on Sutherland Road, Longsdon, Stoke-on-Trent. It's an underground reservoir whose depth is maximum 2 metres (7 feet). It's only 40 metres x 20 metres (131 x 65 feet) but worth visiting. Visibility is rated at 5 - 10 metres (15 - 30 feet).

From Staffordshire it's possible to dive in the Stoney Cove, an inland quarry in neighbouring Leicester. It's a very popular inland site good to visit in the winter months when diving in the sea isn't possible. It's good for training skills for beginners and also for introduction to wreck diving. There are several underwater attractions and interesting marine life.
Diving is possible all year round and a dry suit is recommended except for the period of June to October where a semidry is recommended. Visibility ranges from 1 - 20 metres (3 - 65 feet) and the winter temperatures 3C (37F) while summer temperatures go up to 17C (63F).
