About this spot
This area of riverside walk and grazing land is an extremely popular place for a gentle stroll in the warmer months, and is very easy on the eye as the River Cam wends its lazy way among the reeds and trees. The footpath to Cambridge that runs beside Grantchester Meadows is nicknamed the Grantchester Grind, which is also the title of a 1995 comic novel written by Tom Sharpe. Further upstream is Byron's Pool, named after Lord Byron, who is said (by Brooke, at least) to have swum there.
