War memorial and Redhill United Reformed Church
The church was opened on 28 May 1902 as Redhill Presbyterian Church, built to a design of George Lethridge.

The War Memorial dates from 1923 and was erected after much debate over location and style. The position is at the meeting point of Reigate and Redhill and is the site of the annual Borough Remembrance Service and Parade. The site had previously been the location for a drinking trough and water fountain, both of which were relocated (see TQ2750 : Horse trough and TQ2750 : Drinking fountain, Whitepost Hill, Redhill respectively).

The inscription on the plaque at the base of R R Goulden's statue reads "The bronze represents the triumphant struggle of mankind against the difficulties that beset him in the path of life. Shielding and bearing onward the child, the figure holds aloft the symbol of self-sacrifice to light the way. The flaming cross is used to indicate the suffering endured by men in the War. Flames consume the flesh. The spirit is unconquerable".
