PLACES TO DIVE UK INLAND DIVES

Brin (Bryn) Hall

Bryn Hall can be found on OS map 115 at 631693 between the A55 and Bethesda near Llanllephid. This site is dangerous and not to be recommended. Visibility is variable and the quarry contains munitions and barbed wire. Due to the nature of the bottom a diver lost here has never been recovered. Bryn Hall is a slate quarry, which means that razor sharp slate is everywhere. It is also very cold and at altitude

Last dived here way back in Nov 94. Log book entry reads as follow: "Interesting climb down to waters edge then stride entry. Loads of junk from record players to motorcycles and shotgun barrels to sheeps heads, certainlt diverse scenery. Max depth 19.4m, 44 mins." Don't see why I never went back again!!!!!

Hi to all readers of UK diving If this does not seem too inappropriate? Can I ask all readers to vote for me; I am standing for BSAC national council. As a diabetic I want to encourage as many disabled people into the sport. I also hope to see the age that clubs can start training divers be reduced from 14 to 12 at the individual diving officers discretion. I will also listen to as many divers as possible to see what you want from BSAC. This in turn will help me guide BSAC in the direction that the members desire. If I can ever be of any assistance please do contact me. Many thanks for taking the time to read this. Kind Regards Robert Higgie Email rhiggie@bsac.co.uk

Hi there everyone, my advice to anyone wishing to dive Bryn Hall quarry - don't waste your time or risk your life! As diving Officer of Merseyside Branch 5, it is the honour of this encumbant DO to award our club's premier diving award (a genuine Seibe Gorman Diving Helmet) to our Trainee of the Year. The award is called "The Andy Marshall Memorial Trophy" and it was presented to the club by Andy's father following his sad death in the quarry many years ago. Despite many searches at the time and since, his body has never beed recovered, mainly because of the conditions encountered at depth. Very deep silt that can be penetrated without realising it, barbed wire and other snagging risks. As has been pointed out, there was a plaque erected near the top of the quarry in rememberance of Andy and a service was held at the quarry after the enquiry which was attended by branch members and many locals. Merseyside Branch have no stomach to venture there again, there are many more desirable locations to choose from - why not try the Sea? Geoff Oldfield Merseyside Branch 5 Diving Officer
