Woodstock Divers
A small and friendly club inspiring
new and qualified divers
for the last 40 years!


Club History:
Woodstock Sub – Aqua Club 506 was formed in 1972 at Shell Research Ltd. Sittingbourne Kent. It was registered with the BSAC as a ‘special branch’.

The Woodstock Club was the sports and social club of Shell Research Ltd. Membership was limited to Shell employees, which necessitated the special branch status.

Woodstock was the name of the farm Shell purchased in 1947, on to which the research station was built and one of the many facilities provided for staff was a swimming pool.

In 1995 Shell sold the site and we lost the use of the pool. The Club relocated to the Swallows Leisure Centre with a name change to Woodstock Divers 506.
