Gallery Garden and St. Peter's Church
Gallery Garden and St. Peter's Church
A door from a gallery on the first floor of the demolished house opened on to the garden at the top of the bank. The wall running down the bank has a gate leading to allotments, which occupy the former kitchen garden. The building on the right is the back of the old stable block.
Caversham Court
There has been a garden here beside the River Thames for hundreds of years; the present layout dates from the 17th century. The property was privately owned until the 1930s, when it was purchased by Reading Corporation. A house on the site was demolished, and the grounds opened for public recreation. During 2008/9, a substantial grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund enabled Reading Borough Council to renovate the gardens to the very high standard we see today.
Information about Caversham Court, including a downloadable guide, is available on the Council's website LinkExternal link . The application document for Heritage Lottery funding gives a detailed site history, and photos of the gardens before restoration LinkExternal link .
