Riverside Museum at Blake’s Lock 2024

Telling the story of Reading's two rivers – the Kennet and the Thames – the museum occupies two former industrial buildings. The Turbine House spans the Kennet, and houses preserved turbine machinery, while the Screen House displays a 'Ledge' caravan built by Reading firm Dunton & Sons, and shows a video about gypsy life.
