Huntley & Palmers Bicentennial: Presentation to Reading Civic Society by Joe Doak, Doctoral Researcher in Urban History, Department of Real Estate & Planning
|Date||14 May 2022|
|Time||13:30-15:00 (Timezone: Europe/London)|
|Venue||Abbey Baptist Church|
Joe will describe and explain how the Kings Road factory happened, covering land assembly, funding, design, construction, building use and, finally, redevelopment for office, industrial and retail uses. Indicative of this on-going process of property development, part of the original site is currently being redeveloped once again for the new Huntley Wharf residential scheme. Joe promises to include a few nuggets of social and economic history that he has uncovered from the MERL archives as well as insights into the planning and development process. Joe’s research also contributed to the recent ‘Local Listing’ of the Factory’s Recreation Building and the Factory Garden, next to the Kennet & Avon Canal.
