Talking about reading, DID YOU KNOW…

Reading is a large town and unitary authority area in the ceremonial county of Berkshire, England.

The name probably comes from the Readingas, an Anglo-Saxon tribe whose name means Reada’s People in Old English, or less probably the Celtic Rhydd-Inge, meaning Ford over the River.

By 1525, Reading was the largest town in Berkshire, and tax returns show that Reading was the 10th largest town in England when measured by taxable wealth.

The town continued to expand in the 20th century, annexing Caversham across the River Thames in Oxfordshire in 1911.

“Angry people are not always wise.”

Oscar Wilde was imprisoned in Reading Gaol from 1895–97.

After his release, he lived in exile in France and wrote The Ballad of Reading Gaol, based on his experience of the execution of Charles Wooldridge, carried out in Reading Gaol whilst he was imprisoned there.

“Just because you’re offended, doesn’t mean you’re right.”
