  Blake's Lock Museum
by easyoar

This Museum appears to have changed names very recently and is now called the Riverside Museum at Blake's Lock. It shows how Reading used the River thames and Kennet and Avon Canal to generate power and the history of the town around these waterways.

Directions: From Homesbase (the one near the prison, continue down Kenavon Drive and turn right. The Museum is right on the turning.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
