Proceeds from our secondhand bookshop have enabled us to carry out restoration work on the Stone gallery floor. It's been so successful we've had to spread into another room. Settle into a big sofa with a new read...

The Chase

As well as our own gardens, our outdoor team are responsible for the nature reserve 'the Chase' in Newbury. Home to over 10 species of bird, it is well-renowned for its biodiversity.


We are building and developing working partnerships with local schools, groups and charities. If you are part of an organisation and think we can work together, let us know.
