CAVE (£3 entry Protected content

There are only 4 times during the year the caves in Reigate are open Protected content hence the idea for the walk. These will get very busy and there is no pre-booking so we will take a chance and go there. If it's too crowded we will simply go for the main hike and miss the caves.

FORT

Reigate Fort was one of thirteen ‘mobilisation centres’ built as recently as the Protected content to protect London from invasion. The ‘entente cordiale’ was not yet in effect and the French had been building up their navy, so they were perceived as the major threat.
