Entrance to the Woodlands Estate
A 1960s or 70s estate built in a former sandpit. All the roads are named after vicars of St Mary's Church: in this photo are Sheldon Close (to the left; named after Frederick Sheldon, vicar from 1947 to 1957) and Lymden Gardens (bending round to the right; named after John Lymden, vicar from 1532 to 1536 and the last prior of Reigate prior to the dissolution of Reigate Priory in the Reformation). The other roads on the estate are Harrison Close (named after John Harrison, vicar from 1847 to 1901), Talbot Close (named after Richard Talbot, vicar from 1929 to 1947) and Cranston Close (named after Andrew Cranston, vicar from 1697 and 1708 and founder of the Cranston Library, the first public lending library in Britain - see TQ2550 : St Mary's Church, Reigate).
