Why is there a diving bell at Appley Bridge ? The canal is not that deep is it ?

Wonder how deep it will go in the Leeds Liverpool Canal?

There is a quarry at the back of Northern Diver where they take diving lessons. They don't use this though, good place to buy a snorkel and fins if you are going abroad expecting to snorkel, apparently ND have one of the best dry suits on the market, they do alot of business by mail order, very helpful, think they used to be based in Standish about 20 years ago.
