If you’re looking to get back to nature, a walk on Reigate Heath is the perfect tonic! A Site of Special Scientific Interest, it is one of the nation’s most important wildlife designations, and is an official ‘Nature Reserve’ because it is an important example of the lowland heath habitat, including the heather and acid grassland found there. Look out for the Bronze Age burial mounds, which are anything from three to 5000 years old! When they were first made, the Heath had very few trees, and a cemetery was established. The burial mounds that you’ll see today are what is left of these. You can also walk by Reigate Heath Windmill, which is a grade II* listed post mill. It has been restored and is now used as a chapel; it is thought to be the only windmill in the world, which is a consecrated church!
