TQ2749 : Redhill Common

near to Redhill, Surrey, Great Britain

Redhill Common
Redhill Common
The summit of Redhill Common, with distant views to the south.

On the left is the King George V Memorial, erected in 1935 to commemorate his Silver Jubilee. Made of Portland Stone, it is topped by a view indicator, showing the direction to places both visible and invisible. The site of the memorial is more historic - prior to the memorial there was a sighting pillar here, erected in 1841 by the South Eastern Railway, marking the end of the long straight from Tonbridge to just south-east of Redhill. The trees to the east in the background mean that the line is no longer visible from here.

On the right is the steeple of St John's Church - see TQ2749 : Church of St John the Evangelist
