Heritage Lottery funded project investigates unknown structure

20th August 2013

The National Trust, Surrey County Archaeological Unit and a group of volunteers teamed up recently to investigate an unidentified military structure on Reigate Hill. The structure, formerly believed to be an observation post, lies some two hundred metres or so from Reigate Fort and was investigated as part of the Front Line Surrey Hills project. The project team are uncertain as to the date of the structure and need your help to unearth its mysteries. 

Paul Bowen, keen military historian and member of the Front Line Surrey Hills team says “Reigate Hill and this unidentified structure are still very much a mystery to us. We would be so pleased to hear from readers who remember Reigate Hill during the Second World War; what structures do they recall on the hill, who was based there and what the buildings were used for."
