St Mary’s Butts? What kind of irreverent street name is that and where did it come from?
When did Reading last experience a fatal tornado? And where might you find Queen Victoria’s finger?

The answers to these and other questions are waiting to be discovered but you’ll not find them on the internet. Instead, set out on foot on each of the four trails detailed in this book and find out all about Reading’s hidden history.

Kerry Renshaw grew up in London and studied history at Oxford. The idea for this book comes from his fond memories of the News Chronicle I-Spy series, especially “I-spy the sights of London”, which showed him as a child how much hidden history is to be found on the streets of our towns and cities.
