Rayne Hall Green is a traditional village green that has been maintained as an open space for hundreds of years. It is located within a conservation area and bordered by an old farmhouse, barns and the original manor house, Rayne Hall. A small stream runs along one boundary.

Located prominently on the green is the village’s war memorial to the 33 local men who lost their lives during World War I. The memorial was erected in the 1920s and unveiled by Col. William Capper CVO on the spot where approximately 30 local young men enlisted in the Ninth Essex Regiment in September 1914, as reported in the Daily Mail of Friday 4th September 1914.

In November 2018 a stone was donated by the Verberie Twinning Association to the village of Rayne in recognition of those from the village who served during World War I.
