Reading in top 16% of UK Heritage Index

The RSA (Royal Society for the Arts, Manufacture and Commerce) has published a heritage index map. The index and interactive maps are a resource to help people better understand their local heritage. They are part of a broader RSA project on Heritage, Place and Identity that aims to use heritage in order to achieve a place’s social and economic aspirations.

We in Reading should be chuffed that our ‘much maligned town’ is actually in the top 16% overall AND in the top 2% for Museums, Archives and Artefacts and in the top 8% for the Historic Built Environment.
