Gildenburgh Water is the First UK Centre of Excellence for diving. Its facilities have been recognised by PADI as a 5 Star Career Development Centre (the highest rating achievable).
The lake has been a developing sanctuary for fish and lush plant life since 1945 when the former brickworks closed down. In January 1985 Ian and Pauline Forster, the current owners, bought the lake and 30 acres of surrounding land and have developed a full range of ancillary facilities. With varying depths from 1m to 22m, it is considered by many divers to be the best diving centre in the country.
Diving isn’t the be all and end all of Gildenburgh, we have our very own Paintball site as well.
The Paintball site, known as Alamo Paintball, consists of a number of fields and woods that have been modified with barrels, towers, bunkers and a lot of trenches.
Air, or Nitrox fills can be obtained on site.
