Reading c.1740 – c.1800 Online Talk

By Joan Dils - for those who like history

Discover mid-Georgian Reading in this fascinating online talk by eminent local historian Joan Dils.

Reading’s age of cloth production was over and its reputation for flourishing industries was still to be made. In contrast, during these five decades Reading was intent on cementing its role as an inland port and distribution centre, a magnet for the aficionados of balls and race meetings and a welcome home for serious-minded Christian worshippers. 

2 - 3.15pm
