More than Beer, Biscuits & Bulbs, Reading’s Other Industries

An online talk by Jo Alexander-Jones

While Reading is rightly renowned for its baking, brewing and seed businesses, the town had many lesser-known industries that brought with them prosperity and just as importantly jobs for the wider population. 

In a time when most companies were privately owned, we will explore a number of these companies and the people who owned them covering industries such as printing, ironworking and brickmaking; names like Cox and Wyman, Katesgrove Foundry and Poulton’s Waterloo Kiln Brickworks.

Pre-booking is required, because the event link will be sent in advance.
