Winter Swimming

As another string to my bow I am doing the Alcatraz swim. As that water is VERY cold does anyone know where i can open water swimming near Oxford/Milton Keynes to get some opne water practice under my belt. For all my triathlons (max of Olympic) i haven't bothered but kinda feel I need for the 11 degrees Alcatraz swim. Any feedback would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.

    I'm just back from an open water swim session in a lake. the water temp was probably about that low. after the initial shock its not too bad. I don't normally start to feel the cold until I get out except on my face!!! normally by the time i get out i can't talk!! I'm in ireland so can't help you with the milton keynes thing though sorry
