Shakerley Mere is a shallow 17 acre lake set in a country park. This former sand quarry is popular amongst specimen carp anglers due to the excellent head of large carp it contains. It produces fish to around 30lbs with plenty of good sized back-up fish. Other species in the mere include catfish to over 40lb and large shoals of specimen bream and roach and perch in excess of 4lb.
