Hello,

Been a while since my last report!
I've been doing lots of exploring though, just need to find the time to write up the reports. This one was a random one because we were in the area and saw someone elses report on it, so decided to hit it up.

History
As usual, i tend to post links for reading on history as it's much easier and more informative without me basically copywriting it...

Explore
It was a pretty quick and easy explore. One of those useless fences right outside it had already been pulled open and the main door to the building was also wide open. The place is pretty much a rotten shell with the remains of natural decay and the "help" of vandals. Not to mention the room to the far right been badly drug abused with needles and blood stains everywhere!:oops: horrific to look at. I imagine this place was once a beauty but now like the article says "just an eyesore for neighbours".

It's pretty good if you're in the area and want a quick one to add to the list but other than that, not much too see! Enjoyyyyy..

its best it is sealed would prevent someone going in there and burning it down its the last remaining building left of Reading Gas Works Company along with the The Gas Holder which is due for demolition.

Yes I do agree with you but it is a shame the gas holder has to go

it DONT have to go me and the local Civic Society are working to get the Gas Social Club listed if we can get a group of us putting money towards it we are going to buy the building for community use as its currently up for sale. that will save it from demolition
