Excellent shot of a most interesting building.
Thank you, Paul. There are still a few ancient buildings in Reading town centre, but you have to know where to look. It was a challenge getting a decent shot of it, because like so many ancient buildings, it is now hemmed in by modern developments.
Lovely shot and very interesting too.
