The Bugle, Friar Street
A traditional looking pub which has managed to avoid redevelopment, it extends down a lane to the side called Fife Court. According to a local ex-soldiers' website ( ) the Bugle was opened by Simonds Brewery shortly after the Battle of Maiwand in 1880 (see Image ); the pub sign depicts a bugler of the 66th (Berkshire) Regiment.

Not a sound from The Bugle
Closed down, for now? I would be surprised if this comes back to life under the same guise. See Image for better days.

Friar Street, looking west
The snow seemed to particularly affect Northern Hampshire and Berkshire on this evening. Friar Street, Reading's second main town centre thoroughfare, is normally packed with people and buses in the evening peak. However, gridlock elsewhere meant that nothing was getting back to the town centre so people had the street to themselves.

Queen Victoria Street, Reading
Late 19th century Baroque-style architecture gives a striking appearance to this street that links Broad Street and Friar Street. Beyond is a building on the corner of Station Road and Friar Street. As is typical of Friar Street, that now houses a bar, but was formerly a branch of Barclays Bank.
