Saturday and Sunday 8,9 and 15,16 September 2018 12noon-6pm FREE!
Acacias, University of Reading London Rd Campus (enter by Crown Street – free car parking)
We are working with several University-related organisations and the Two Rivers Press, opening up the Acacias on London Road during the national Heritage Open Days in September, with a particular emphasis on Edith Morley, the country’s first female professor who was also noted for her work with refugees and her campaigning for women’s education and suffrage.
The Acacias was a Palmer family residence which they donated to the University College Reading.
*Please note – there are a couple of steps to get into the Acacias. This should be possible with a manual wheelchair (we can give assistance if needed) but may be difficult for a heavy motorised wheelchair. The Dairy Cafe and the Museum of English Rural Life on the same site have step-free access. Accessible toilets available there.*
