More news, no ads


Football is back at Faraday Road, along with other park sports, after the council re-opened the former football ground area as a public recreation space this week.

The former Faraday Road football ground site has been vacant for three years.

The clubhouse was destroyed in an arson attack in August, and was subsequently demolished.

Only the concrete base of the former clubhouse remains and is likely to remain in situ for the time being.

The former pitch forms part of the London Road Industrial Estate which has been earmarked for commercial and residental development for years.

West Berkshire Council’s executive member for finance and economic development Ross Mackinnon (Con, Bradfield) said: “This is good news for local people, who will be able use it for exercise, informal sports and recreation while we bring forward plans to develop the site as part of ambitious plans for the London Road Industrial Estate.”
