About our website

As technologies have changed, so has our website. We've had a few flavours since the "text heavy" days of 1997. Through animated gif images of the early millennium to hopefully a use-friendly mini portal to all that we offer.

The site is currently built, managed and maintained by former dive Instructor and BWD staff member Dave Lees, who now lives and works, but doesn't blow bubbles anymore in Manchester, North West England.

The site is built on the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 and is backed by a Microsoft SQL 2008 R2 database. We use JQuery and AJAX wherever we feel it might compliment and have tried to ensure a semantic and accessible web page is provided for the enjoyment of all.
