Blake’s Lock
Riverside Museum at Blake’s Lock
This small branch site tells the story of Reading’s two rivers – the Kennet and the Thames – the Riverside Museum occupies two Listed former waterworks buildings, the Screen House and the Turbine House. It is open every day from April to September, from 10am to 6pm.
The Screen House displays our beautiful gypsy caravan built by Reading firm Dunton and Sons to the ‘Ledge’ design, and a video about gypsy life. You can also see a variety of objects illustrating life by the river, from stuffed fish to regatta tickets, including a medieval wooden wheel from St Giles Mill found during archaeological excavations at the site of The Oracle shopping centre.
The Turbine House is a unique Victorian building that spans the River Kennet, with views across the water. It houses preserved turbine machinery and since 2003 has been hosting a programme of summertime art exhibitions and events by the local cultural community.
