Romney Island is an island in the River Thames in England connected to Romney Lock, at Windsor, Berkshire. It is a long thin island with trees and scrub, with the upstream end in Windsor and the downstream end almost at Black Potts.
The island has always been a popular place for angling and Isaak Walton used to fish from here. The island separates the weir stream from the navigation channel to the lock. There are proposals to build a hydro scheme at the weir here. They appeared to have been abandoned in February 2008 but a revised proposal was put forward in May 2008.
