Description

Polish Roman Catholic Church, Watlington Street, Reading

This impressive building was formerly St. John's Anglican Church. It was saved from demolition by being taken over by the Polish community. It is now a Roman Catholic Church, and has recently been restored by fund raising from the community and a grant from English Heritage.

Comment by Edward Lever (Photo owner)(16th November 2019)

Thank you for your kind comment, Paul. This church is Grade II listed, built 1872-73, and gets a mention by Pevsner in his 'Buildings of England'. It is a big eye-catching building with its rough rock facings and its red stone window dressings. It is situated in a fairly narrow street so it is difficult to get a shot without converging verticals, which I have left largely uncorrected in this shot.
