About Sandford & Down
The owners, David & Jeannette Pelly, bought Sandford and Down when it became available in April 2000. The shop itself has been a centre for diving since 1964.
Previously David worked in the shop as an equipment engineer, he has over 20 years of offshore and recreational diving experience. Our shop includes a diver training school S&D TRAINING, run by David and Scott, offering a wide range of courses from BSAC & PADI.
We offer a friendly and enthusiastic service to people, both able bodied and disabled that are new to the sport and to those wishing to either brush up old skills or learn new ones.
We offer a warm friendly reception to everyone, no matter what experience or knowledge and we are firm believers that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the wonders that diving has to offer. We provide all types of equipment, from the Novice to the Technical diver at competitive rates, with the previous servicing experience gained while working professionally off-shore we offer the facility, on site, to service diving equipment including cylinders, regulators and 1st stages, we can also repair suits and other items of equipment which may be damaged due to the wear and tear of diving, so if you are near our shop please drop in, and say hello!
