Colley folly

Folly on Colley Hill

This folly can be found at the top of Colley Hill near Reigate in Surrey. When the weather is clear, there are fine views over to Box Hill, Leith Hill and the Weald.  At 230 metres this is the fifth highest point in Surrey.  The inscription on the circular, classical-style pavillion (which is known as Robert’s Pavillion) reads:

Presented to the Corporation of the Borough of Reigate for the benefit of the public by Lieutenant-Colonel Robert William Inglis in 1909

Sir Robert William Inglis was a Scotman, born in Angus, Scotland on 22 July 1843. He died at the age of 79 in Reigate, Surrey.  Here is a beautiful panoramic view of the pavillion, and here’s a photo of Colley Hill with light December snow, both from Flickr.
