Have your say

I wonder how many of you remember this site? It is, of course, the magical fountain located in the rock gardens along Southsea seafront. I remember being taken there as a child, but never being able to find it on my own.

It was hidden behind a myriad of trees and plants.

Today this area is, in my opinion, a disaster. Although the gardens are still kept up together to a fair degree, it’s not to the standard of 50 years ago.

The fountain is in dire need of restoration.
