Falling Rocks (also known as Stybarrow Crag) is a great dive site in Ullswater.  Depths to suit most divers.

Parking/Meeting PlaceStybarrow Crag parking

The car parking layby on the A592, just over half a mile north of Glenridding.  The nearest post code is CA11 0NG, but that covers a wide area, so a sat nav might not take you to the exact place.

It’s a popular spot with walkers and people participating in other water sports, so it can fill up quite early.


None.  You need to kit up out of your car or take a bench with you.

Dive site accessFalling Rocks entry point

Just a short walk across the main road which can be busy with traffic, then down a slope and onto a pebbly/rocky beach area.

Diver proficiency

Suitable for all levels of qualified diver as it’s a gentle slope down underwater, so you can choose your depth.

In the water

We tend to dive to the right of the entry point.  We often swim along at about 5 metres depth until we reach the large boulders, and then follow them down to our desired depth.  There are other options though.  Your Dive Manager should advise you.

Hazards/Risks/Special Equipment

A good torch and back up are essential as the water is usually very dark and peaty.  Boat traffic, paddle boarders and swimmers can be encountered, so a DSMB should be deployed if surfacing in anything but very shallow water.

The road is usually very busy, so great care should be taken when crossing.
