    Visited with TBM, Landie Man and a non-member.

    "Closed in 2004 due the arrival of the Oracle shopping centre, Friars Walk was a shopping mall/walkway which used to link Friars Street to Station Street in Reading"

    Seems odd that the only occupants found for this prime piece of retail space are Airsoft guys and pigeons. The Airsoft guys are properly decent people and despite the whole ethos of this website it is probably best to go through them if you want to visit as the exterior is even more impenetrable than ever, there are no such 'tours' given you are left to freely wander the place and go pretty much anywhere so it's no different to any other explore just has nice toilets, tea and coffee available and lots of Airsoft guns hanging around!

    Sorry about the poor lighting of some shots, which was due to a collective torch fail (only one decent torch between the 4 of us plus a couple of tiny ones!)

    Then we found what we'd been looking for...shoes off, in we went and we all acted like we were 7 again.
