Reigate Fort was built in 1898 as part of the London Defence Scheme. It was built as part of a 72-mile defence line to protect London whilst a huge shipbuilding programme was initiated by the British government. However, by 1906 the Government no longer felt that it was needed as they now had a superior navy to defend our shores. The fort was decommissioned and subsequently sold to a private owner in 1907.
The fort was designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument in 1972 by English Heritage and, since 2000, the fort has been restored with the help of various grants and a dedicated band of volunteers.
