TQ2642 : Reigate Road

taken 6 years ago, near to Hookwood, Surrey, Great Britain

Reigate Road
Reigate Road
The route of the original Brighton Turnpike (subsequently the A217), which met the 1816 direct route from Gatton Point, north of Redhill (subsequently the A23) at Povey Cross (see TQ2642 : Povey Cross). The road lost its importance following the development of Gatwick Airport in the 1950s, with the Brighton Road being diverted to skirt round the east of the airport, the present route of the A23, and the A217 being diverted from Hookwood, to the north of here, to link up with the A23 at the Longbridge Roundabout.

On the right of the photo is the gateway to Povey Cross House (see TQ2642 : Povey Cross House).
