About Godwins Pool

Thorney Pool in Buckinghamshire was a popular fishing spot before it had to be closed due to oil pollution. However, in 2008, the Environment Agency made sure everything was safe and the lake was restocked with Carp and silver fish. Now, there are Carp in the lake that are over 30lb.

Thorney Pool has always been a favorite among young anglers and is a great place for beginners. The lake has gravel bars, a small bay, reed beds, and a small island that is a good fishing spot. It is known for bream and tench fishing, with bream weighing up to 10lb and tench up to 8lb.

To access the lake, you will need to enter through locked gates and there is parking behind some of the fishing spots. The toilet facilities are shared with Rodney Meadow.
