The Rye is a large park area to the east of the town centre. The river Wye (well, it's more of a large stream, really) runs alongside, and there are football pitches and a children's play area. Occasionally a funfair or other event is held here.

Not exactly the Trevi fountain is it ?
It comes to something when the most interesting thing in the town is a windsept piece of pedestrianised road with a fountain coming up out of the pavement.
It looks nice enough, but due to lack of maintenance (I presume) the jets of water are not all balanced, which rather spoils the effect.
I presume that the fountains are put to good use on rowdy Saturday nights for impromptu wet tee-shirt competions - but I'm only guessing !
Playing in the Fountains
Esther and I found the fountains outside the Lytton Tree to be a mighty fun activity.
The picture provides an example of one of the many nights that Esther and I could not hold ourselves back from jumping through the glorious fountains. We then proceeded to the Lytton Tree drenched in water and ready to dance.
It really is a must on a warm night.
Watch London Wasps
