Thanks for popping in.
This impressive church with its chequered stonework has origins dating from the 7th Century when St Birinus founded a small chapel on the site which is now right in the centre of Reading. If you are interested to read about the history of the church through its various restorations, how it fared in the Civil and World Wars, here's a link.
Look how beautiful it looks inside.
Just round the corner from the church, is the 16th Century building housing the Allied Arms, a pub since 1828. It's also been a butchers and a brewery over the years and its beams, like those in the church, probably were obtained from the Abbey buildings following its dissolution by King Henry VIII.
Round the corner yet again, we end up in Broad Street, the main shopping road. Don't the buildings look great in the sun.
We'll just stop off in John Lewis where Easter is already on their minds!
