Buckland Lake – April 2012

First trip to Buckland Lake

This was our first trip to Buckland Lake in north Kent near Cliffe for a warm-up dive. It was fairly quiet, there were only about 6 other divers. We did a couple of dives and found various items that had been submerged underwater including the fusilage of a plane and a small boat. These were all fairly shallow, less than 10m. When we went down a bit deeper we found it quite silty and the visibility dropped quite dramatically. But it was an enjoyable day’s diving and only an hour from south London.
