As the nineteenth century dawned most of the land where Redhill now stands was waterlogged wasteland, a few miles to the east of the London to Brighton Road. Unlike its illustrious neighbours, it has no history which can be traced back to the days of William the Conqueror - yet it was to become as big as any town in the locality and a commercial centre to draw in people from all around. The town owes its existence to the construction of a road linking Gatton Point to the London - Brighton Road at Povey Cross in 1818, and later the arrival of the railway. Two stations were introduced to the area in the early 1840s, one on the London to Brighton Route and a second on the Dover line.
