Hill Street today
When the Whitley Pump recently reviewed Picture Palace to Penny Plunge by David Cliffe, we found out that a scene from the film A Bridge too Far had been shot on Hill Street in Katesgrove.
If you want to find out what and where the ‘Penny Plunge’ and ‘Twopenny Plunge’ were, then you should read David Cliffe’s fascinating book about Reading’s cinemas, just published by Two Rivers Press.
38 Hill Street
One of the more surprising views of Katesgrove is from the western side of the Kennet on Berkeley Avenue.
