Reading's derelict bus station
Reading's derelict bus station
Part of a rundown site that is earmarked for a proposed redevelopment. The plans are being spearheaded by John Madejski (chairman of Reading FC) and include offices, shops, restaurants, apartments and a public arts venue. The proposed buildings are as high as 22 storeys. Hopefully they will be given the go-ahead and bring the area into the 21st century.

The bus station ceased to function as such about fifteen or so years ago. The symbol still appears on Ordnance Survey maps. However, there is no bus station these days - just a lot of bus stops on Station Hill
