I went over to Reading the other day and was rather shocked to see that all of Station hill had changed again. Now I admit it was a while since I had bee to the town and the last they were preparing to demolish some buildings . I'll fill you in a bit with some new and old photos.
This building I knew as the Foster Wheeler Building. I thought it was going to be demolished but it seems the cladding was removed and they added another four stories to it.
This part here used to have a Subway you could walk along to the Bus Station
The area behind the fencing used to be Reading Bus Station. I might add I remember the building that was there before that
All this are used to have an office block and shopping arcade
To give you an idea as to what used to be here, the office block, the Bus Station was the near the Office Tower taken a couple of years ago as they prepaired to demolish the building
The original Foster Wheeler building before it was changed.
All of Station hill was redeveloped back in the late 1960's where I remember all the work being done. It's not an area I liked very much so demolishing it can only improve the look
If you click the link you can see some photos I took of Station Hill and Reading Bus Station back in 2009

Always interesting to see how our local cities change.ReplyDelete
I don't know Reading and those buildings give me no motivation to get to know it.ReplyDelete
Things can change- usually when we're not looking!ReplyDelete
I noticed a lot of construction in London when I was there last month. It must be going on everywhere in England. I wonder if that will change after Brexit.ReplyDelete
