London has Big Ben and Paris has the Eiffel Tower, but Reading has the Maiwand Lion.
Set up in 1897 to comemorate the men of the Royal Berkshire Regiment who fought and died at the village of Maiwand, Afghanistan, in 1880, this very impressive beast is the emblem of the town and a favourite meeting place.
