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 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.
