Micheala asked about cheaper underwater cameras than the Go Pro 2.
As some others within the group may want to film underwater I thought that these links may be useful.
Go Pro 2 : The new go pro 2 is around £262 from Amazon uk
You can still buy the original HD Go Pro for about £184 :
Another Camera that I have found that has good reviews is:
ContourROAM Waterproof HD Action Camera it is about £146 :
To Shoot at more than just a few feet underwater this camera needs a case which is about £32 : This brings the total to around £184
The other option is to buy a waterproof case for your own camera or mobile phone. These can be soft cases and work well up to a few meters underwater:Cost from £20 – £50
Lawrence asked about possible web sites for locations in the UK. One of my undergrad students used a site to find a disused mental asylum which he filmed in.
I have been looking for derelict places on line and think I have found the link that the undergrad student used.
Its called: http://www.abandoned-britain.com/
If you dig around on the site you will find photos of possible locations. The one my student used was an asylum. He just climbed the fence got in and filmed.
Another site I found was : http://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/
