conserving Reading

Reading has 15 conservation areas.  The Borough council wants to maintain the character of the areas and uses more regulations governing upgrades and maintenance of a property than outside of a conservation area.   I phoned the planning department to check whether they knew about the updates to the possible new Wendy House I’ve asked to buy.  

Planner:   whats your current address?

Wendy:     the big white house

Planner:   I know that!   my best friend used to live there…

how cosey is that?

centre of the universe or small town? part II

Before moving to the temporary Wendy House in Reading I spent all of 5 minutes looking for bloggers who confessed to a connection with Reading.   I found Reading Roars and Scary Duck.   After turning up in Reading I  built a ‘feel’ for liveable-in places in Reading by riding some of the local bus routes.   Most circular routes appear to take less than 45 mins.   That’s a sizist  comment: “Reading,   the  size of  several 45 mins circular bus routes“.     Apparantly this photograph of buses passing on Route 24 was taken very near the cardboard box that ScaryDuck claims to live in.  

How cosy is that?
