Warehouses and manufacturing in Reading

Commonly referred to as the commercial capital of the Thames Valley, Reading has become a popular commuter town for those who work in London. But during the 19th century, like most parts of the UK, the town started to become more industrial, with manufacturing quickly becoming a popular sector to work in at the time.

By 1856, the booming manufacturing industry had helped to build the great Western Railway, the South Eastern Railway and even the London and South Western Railway, allowing residents to travel even further than ever before.

By 1900, the population in Reading had more than doubled, prompting calls for additional housing. In response, a considerable number of terraced houses were built and so the manufacturing industry had started to slow, much like other parts of the country. Since then, Reading has become known for the Three B’s: beer, bulbs and biscuits.

Jump forward to both the 20th and 21st century and Reading is now pioneering the technology sector, not to mention the retail industry in the town is also doing remarkably well, showing no signs of slowing down.
