Byron’s Pool

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.

Byron’s Pool was declared as a Local Nature Reserve on the 31 st January 2005.
