'Grand Houses' 1st Talk of series (Thu. 11 Apr, 2019 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

The history of Coley Park House and estate: with Katie Amos and Mike Cooper

In its various iterations, Coley Park House in Reading has a rich and varied history.  The Tudor manor house of the staunchly Catholic Vachell family was replaced by a Georgian house, set in landscaped parkland. Altered again in the 1840s, it would be taken over by The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food after the Second World War.
