Byrons Pool

Byrons Pool was named after Lord Byron who used to swim at the weir pool and the site was declared a Local Nature Reserve in January 2005. This pleasing 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 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, frogspawn in the spring and in the summer dragonflies and damselflies can be seen. As with all these sites please observe the Country Code, take your litter home with you, keep dogs on a lead, where dogs are allowed, and keep to marked paths to avoid disturbing wildlife.
