    Not for me I'm afraid. My ears won't tolerate diving.

    Readie, I used to work on the Breakwater as a student. At good low tides you could find odd bits of the Lancaster and loads of 40mm Bofors ammunition. A trip out to the Breakwater is worth it in it's own right.

    I have only set foot on the Breakwater once to look at the central fort when I doing my boat licence training ( and no..I didn't run into it either :lol:)
    At very low tides you can see where the Breakwater was hit by a German bomb in WW2 and subsequently repaired.

    I would love to find a piece of Lancaster !
