Save Reading Gaol for the community

Reason for signing

  • The site of Reading Gaol is hugely historical containing not only the gaol buildings but also, under them, the remains of the great and very important Abbey. Reading has a long and varied history and this site is very much at the heart of that. It should be celebrated and treasured for the community, not sold for the profit of developers. We need a real cultural centre in Reading and this site could provide it and make the people of Reading proud of their culture and heritage.
