    A quarry. Where they used to quarry things. With water in it. Where someone puts on diving equipment and goes in the water.

    Or am I missing some subtlety to your question?!!!

    Yup, overhead's cave diving isn't it?

    Off-topic, but how about this for a great write-up!

    Coniston is only overhead if you go off the pumping shaft. The shaft itself has a clear surface. According to the old surveys its 1400ft+ to the bottom.

    There's another limestone mine in Derbyshire that is around 300m+ too. Again, it's a vertical shaft which intersects a natural cave at the bottom.
