Wokingham – Monday 6th May 2019

Our final Waterstones on this trip was in Wokingham, another market town.  We were there on the spring bank holiday and there was a May Fayre taking place with a variety of stalls and an open-air music venue where we watched a really good Steel-drummer!  The town is pretty and it was nice to see it so busy, but due to the number of people there we weren’t really able to explore it fully.  The Waterstones is in a modern, airy building and only opened in December 2018

The present town was built to replace the old Guildhall which had fallen into a state of disrepair.  It opened in 1860 and is a popular wedding venue.
