About this photo

St Mary's Butts is in the centre of Reading. The chequerboard flint and limestone tower of the church of St Mary's is a distinctive local landmark. The church dates back to Saxon times.

This is an excerpt from Berkshire Photographic Memories, by Nick Channer

From south west of the station go first to St Mary's Butts, whose wide street was used until about 1600 for archery practice at the 'butts'. In 1886 houses in front of St Mary's church were cleared; the railings date from about 1890. Much on the left has now disappeared to make way for the gruesome Broad Street Mall.
