The UK’s Original National Dive Site!


Dosthill Quarry Lake

  • Diving started in 1958.
  • In 1981 the site was bought by the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) and it became their National Dive Site.
  • The BSAC sold it to Ian Forster in 1988 – totalling then, and still, the 2 oldest National Dive Sites in Ian’s ownership – Dosthill Quarry near Birmingham, and Gildenburgh Water near Peterborough.
  • Diving is still the main activity, although since the 2012 Olympics in London, there has been a huge upsurge in interest in open water swimming, which is now a popular additional activity at the Quarry.
