2. Purchased by Reigate Corporation in 1921. The Castle was a C12 construction of motte and bailey type with a shell keep, but none of the masonry survives. The Castle had fallen into ruins by C16 and the process was completed in 1642. But there was still something left in the C18, and out of the stones Richard Barnes built a Gothic gateway in 1777 in memory of William de Warrenne, as an inscription on this in English and Latin records. It is built of stone rubble and consists of a pointed arch with high castellated parapet over containing 2 cross-shaped windows on each front and turrets at the angles.
