Summer outing 18th July 2019

Project Purley’s summer outing this year will be a guided tour of the Reading Abbey ruins and the Abbey Quarter, followed by a cream tea.  Our guide will be John Painter, who has been Secretary of the Friends of Reading Abbey since 2013, and who has also had a book published on the Abbey, so it is unlikely that any question will go unanswered!

The tour will take approximately 90 minutes, but for those who would rather not walk for so long, Forbury Gardens will be close by, with many benches available, and the tour group will return there before heading off for the cream tea.

The cost will be £10 per person – please contact Jean Chudleigh ( to book your place.
