River Cam

Whittlesford, CB22 4, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom

Byron's Pool was named after Lord Byron who used to swim at the weir pool. This pleasant woodland site offers a lovely circular walk next to the River Cam where Kingfishers and Grey Wagtails can be seen on the weir. The woodland is being managed through the removal of non-native species such as Sycamore and through the introduction of coppicing of native species such as Hazel.

The site also contains a number of small ponds, which are managed for the benefit of amphibians. CFPAS Ltd are pleased to announce that we have been given the pool to manage on behalf of Cambridge City Council and that you are able to fish the water with your existing membership. Please note Byron's Pool is a Local Nature Reserve. Location: From Trumpington take Grantchester Road towards Grantchester. Turn left just before river and cottages sign posted for Byron's Pool.
