Spot the stinkpipe – the Lockdown Edition



This tall and probably once very beautiful stinkpipe is in central Reading on a major bus route. It has avoided our stinkpipe spotters for many years although it is scarcely hidden.

The design of this stinkpipe is closest to the example on New Road in Redlands. If you know of any others, then please email us at [email protected].
