Reigate Priory - Another Chapter, DVD
the history behind the restoration

Reigate Priory Another Chapter

Reigate Priory has always been at the very heart of Reigate town but how many people know about those who actually lived there and how their occupancy has influenced the parkland?

This film highlights how the restoration project was able to bring the park's fascinating history and the modern day park facilities together.

Featuring lots of historical material and new footage, it will take you from the 11th century right up to the present day. Did you know that the tallest hornbeam tree in the UK is in the park's ancient woodland or that the lake used to be six fish ponds?

Reigate Priory will never again be just a park to you after seeing this film.
