Mick, it's not a lake, it's a pond and it's called 'George's'.

To us locals Georges pond. Maybe some one could tell us how it got this name?

If you look on the map it is on Wotton Drive.

There appears to be some big carp in, according to the angler.

I hope this intrepid Angler caught something because he seems to have been there for some time!

A lot of fishermen camp out for days while trying to catch some fish. You can tell if they are serious about fishing by the amount of cans of cider and ale they bring with them.

I believe it was named after me.

Is Carr Mill Dam on the East Lancs Road?
Is Scotmans Flash on Poolstock Lane?
