Reading, Berkshire

'''Reading''' ( ) is a large town (town status in the United Kingdom) and unitary authority area (unitary authorities of England) in the ceremonial county (Ceremonial counties of England) of Berkshire, England. It was an important centre in the medieval (Middle Ages) period, as the site of Reading Abbey, a monastery with strong royal connections. The town was seriously affected by the English Civil War, with a major siege and loss of trade, and played a pivotal role in the Revolution of 1688 (Glorious Revolution), with that revolution's only significant military action fought on the streets of the town. The 19th century saw the coming of the Great Western Railway and the development of the town's brewing, baking and seed growing businesses.
