Pluck Lake
Near to the Liberty Stadium development on the fringe of the Enterprise Park. This water has about 18 pegs but is extremely weedy. You'll need to clear a swim before use. It's rarely fished but has some big bream, tench & eels for those looking to put some work in. Quite frankly no one knows what's in there!
