Dennis Wood’s talk at Christ Church in October about the history of Reading’s Southern Hill was so successful that he will give another history talk, on Wednesday 29 April, about Whiteknights Park.

More than an estimated 70 people filled the church on 9 October to hear local historian Dennis Wood describe the development of Reading’s Southern Hill from an Abbey-owned estate on the edge of Reading to the favoured suburb of Victorian Reading’s industrialists.

Dennis’s next talk will be about Whiteknights Park, and this talk will also be accompanied by tea and cake.
