Yes I'd say you could shove it back in place in half the time it took to photograph it and upload it here.

Tipex is right. Pathetic gutless waste of time showing off with a photo.

In any sensible town someone with a Landrover would have got that back into place (either pushing or pulling) by now - I mean a proper Landrover like you see in towns like Hailsham, @ the market. I'd rather see the photo of the 6 hi-viz workmen and their full safety kit buggering around with it . That would be a laugh.

One man could lever it back into place, using a short scaffold pole and some cloth folded to protect the stone.

You've got to love the good people of Lewes. The original poster actually bothers to do something about it and then gets moaned at by those who've done nothing!

Lewes Voter 3 and Tipex, shame on you! First of all, there is no way a single person can shove back into place, I tried. Second of all, what is 'showing off' about? Are you incompetent at taking photos and therefore jealous? What absolute pillocks you've made of yourselves.

For those interested, the trough marks the site where a previous "watergate" stod in the medieval town walls.
The Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association is still active today! It is now called the Drinking Fountain Association.The objectives of the Association are to promote the provision of drinking water for people and animals in the United Kingdom and Overseas. They have a campaign called "find a fountain" i.e. encourage people to use drinking fountains and cut down on waste from plastic bottles.
message to "safety first" - that trough has been there for ages, survived a couple of world wars, and numerous other disruptions over the years so why do we need to remove it now? The only thing "dangerous is the idiots who drive into it!
