    popped up here today. nice easy explore...

    bit of info:

    'Thirteen Mobilisation Centres were built between 1889 and 1903 as part of the London Defence Scheme. These were not planned as forts although some of them would have been armed on mobilisation. Their main function was as a store for guns, small arms ammunition, tools and other equipment required for the batteries and infantry allocated for the defence of the neighbourhood in the event of a foreign invasion. The casemates could also be used as barrack accommodation.'

    Reigate was later used by the Canadians in WW2. English Heritage are currently restoing the fort to be opened to the public later in the year.
