Historic doors open to the public
Some of the most interesting buildings in Berkshire will be opening their doors to the public as part of a series of heritage open days.

Lasting four days, the event in Reading includes guided tours and peeks behind the scenes of historic landmarks.

There will also be an opportunity for people to trace their family roots.

Councillor Catherine Wilton said: "The event always seems to uncover some new hidden corner of Reading and it helps people see their town in a new light."

Some of the highlights of the event include the chance to see more of Reading Minster, Greyfriars Church, St Giles' Church, BBC Monitoring Office and Reading Hindu Temple and Community Centre.

The event runs from 10 - 13 September.
