Brief Description: A colour picture map of the layout of Reading in the medieval period
Subject Date: 1993
Creator: Pip Hall
 
Full Description: The abbey brought major town development to Reading. The town spread south of the Kennet in the twelfth century. New Street (later Friar Street), Broad Street and London Street all came into being in the thirteenth century. This conjectural picture map, by Reading-based artist Pip Hall, captures the way in which the water meadows of the Kennet separated the houses along London Street from the main town development.
