Explore Reigate Hill – free, guided walk

1st July 2018, 11:00 - 13:00

Join the Chairman of Surrey Hills Society, Chris Howard on this summer walk around this stunning part of the Surrey Hills, with great views from the North Downs. We will visit Colley Hill, which is contiguous with Reigate Hill, and is the ninth highest hill in Surrey.

We will also visit the Inglis Memorial which 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. We will also visit the Simpson Memorial on Colley Hill is dedicated to Captain George Simpson of the 5th Battalion, Queens Royal West Surrey Regiment. He died in 1909, aged 26 after a short illness, and his mother donated 3 acres of Reigate Hill, to the Corporation of Reigate, in his memory.

We will cross the Reigate Hill footbridge which was designed in 1908 by LG Mouchel & Partners. It was completed in 1910. It is a single span segmental arched bridge, which covers a 97ft (30m) expanse.
