Beautiful clear water at Vobster Quay Dive centre. This flooded quarry near Shepton Mallet is now well set up for free diving, open water swimming and scuba diving. Unable to dive tonight as I am putting my dive tanks in for test, but I stood at the water's edge wishing I could get in. Watched other divers kitting up and I tried to see crayfish amongst the submerged rocks, but no luck. This land-locked lake is also now a breeding site for the endangered British white clawed crayfish - although I have yet to see one and will be looking very carefully when I dive here with Graham in a couple of weeks.
