High Wycombe rivers.
The river that runs from Hughenden Park is the Hughenden stream.The river Wye begins in West Wycombe it flows through the grounds of West Wycombe House. It roughly follows the direction of the A40, going through the Desbrough recreation park, and on into High Wycombe town centre, where it is covered over. Somewhere under this the Hughenden steam meets up with the Wye. The river can be seen near the Swan theatre, police station and coucil offices.It then runs through the Rye, the large recreation park in High Wycombe. The river roughly follows the A40 still. Over the other side of the Rye, running parallel to the river Wye is a river known as the Dyke. It starts in the grounds of Wycombe Abbey, although most of it here was artificially dug. They are difficult to trace after this as the often go under ground some of the way. The Wye flows through Kingsmead recreation park again following the A40, with what is now the Marsh brook also known as Back stream flowing the other side of the mead.Eventually the Wye ends up in Bourne End and enters the Thames.
