B-17 crash site

On Monday 19 March 1945, an American B-17 (Flying Fortress) crashed into the side of Reigate Hill. The clearing in the trees created by the plane is still evident; a memorial at the site has been dedicated to the lives of the crew who died there.

The original Tool Store survives at Reigate Fort, built in 1898

Reigate Fort was built in 1898; one of thirteen which ran along the North Downs to Essex and built to protect London from an attack by the French. It was built as a mobilisation centre, holding cutting tools for clearing trees and digging tools for entrenching.

The fort is open every day for you to look around. Dogs are welcome but must be on a lead because sheep graze freely.

The Inglis Memorial

The Inglis Memorial was donated to the Borough of Reigate in 1909, by Lieutenant Colonel Sir Robert William Inglis VC. It was built as a drinking fountain for horses on the original main route over Reigate Hill.
