Reigate dates back to around the Stone Age and been built up over the years by William the Conqueror, William I and others. In the 16th century, the town developed a large trade in oatmeal but then ceased by about the 1720s and then in the 19th century the tannery trade took off in Linkfield Street. The coming of the London and Brighton Railway in 1841 led to new building works growing the population of the town. Little Britain star David Walliams attended Reigate Grammar School.
