    I came a cross a picture of what appears to be some sort of celebration in Reigate, this huge archway was erected at the junction of High St, West St./Park Lane, it looks very Victorian. Is there any way I could send you this picture to see if anyone in your archive office might recognise it? I’ll try to include a link. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=673798029402569&set=gm.861099993930655&type=1&theater

    Does anyone remember the name and/address of a grand house in the Reigate area in the mid 1900’s which had a staff cottage (with a brook at the end of the garden)? The cottage was left to my husbands grandfather after the 2nd WW.

      Lindsey

      Can you send an email to [email protected] with details of your grandfather’s name and approx. which decade(s) you are referring to and the Redhill Centre for Local & Family History can look at a street directory in order to help you.

      Thanks

      Steve

    I am organising a 60th anniversary walk around Priory Park in October.
    I believe the original walk ended at a café near the junction of Park Lane and Reigate High Street (1959) I wonder if you have any idea of the location. I don’t believe it is the site of the Nail Bar which someone said used to be a café. The directions don’t really match. I would be so grateful if anyone can help. A photo would be the icing on the cake!

    • Liz wakefield says:

      I think it was where 23 west st is now. There was a shack type building at the front which I believe was once a cafe. Then a a physio. Now it is a pull in for a car!

      • Thanks, Liz, I assisted Chris… we had an inkling that was an alternative. FYI Full details of the walk, questions and answers can be seen on the Quizwalks website (1st October 2017 [http://www.quizwalks.com/Walks/qwalkevent1709.html])
