Rising up from a maximum depth of 22m, the Crushing Works is one of the most interesting dive attractions at Vobster Quay, Central Quarry, East of Quayside. Carved out of the side of the quarry wall, it is a massive structure that should not be missed by any visiting diver. Ideal for divers for all experience levels, beginners can take in its shear size whilst experienced divers will enjoy exploring its lower depths.
Running out along its length at the top of the structure is an intricate metal framework which offers a series of fun swim-thrus ideal for the less experienced - care must be taken to tuck hoses in close to the body to avoid snagging the framework, though. For those with overhead environment training, a couple of small holes in the base of the structure provide some more challenging swimthrus. These areas are very confined and visibility can be reduced substantially if the bottom is kicked up!
The location of the crushing works makes it an ideal detour for divers visiting the aircraft, lying as it does within very close proximity of the aircraft tail section and industrial dryer. For visiting instructors, the top of the crushing works provides an ideal platform to run through skills and drills whilst still providing students with visual interest during their dives.
