Reading Central Salvation Army


We are at:

Castle Hill roundabout, Reading


The Salvation Army
Anstey Road, Reading RG1 7JR

From the M4 motorway, junction 11:

To reach the The Salvation Army, follow the signs for Reading (A33). Continue straight on at four roundabouts. At the next group of traffic lights there is a BP garage on the left. At these traffic lights, follow the main road (A33) as it bends to the right and then get into the left lane. Pass under the iron bridge. Keep in the left lane through the next group of traffic lights and up the slope into the slip road from the Inner Distribution Road. ** (if you are going to the public car park at the Broad Street Mall go right at the roundabout - 3rd exit) See map for details. Continue up Castle Hill to the traffic lights and turn right. Immediately turn right again into Russell Street. At the crossroads, turn right and then take the third turning on the right into Anstey Road. The Salvation Army is at the end on the left.

Car parking:

We have a small car park at the Salvation Army but it is often full on Sundays but you are welcome to use it if there is room. The owners of the Lightbox building (formerly known as "Advantage building") have also given permission for members of our congregation to use their car park on Sundays (enlarge the route map to see the location). The Lightbox car park is available on Sunday mornings and at other times on Sunday when the expected size of the congregation requires it. Also there are public car parks 5 - 6 minutes walk away.

Broad Street Mall Car Park

To reach this car park, follow the instructions above as far as **. At the top of the slip road go right at the roundabout. Take the first left at the mini-roundabout; then follow the signs to the car park.
After parking your car leave by the southerly staircase (this is on the wall with open areas in it). From the exit at ground level stand with your back to the exit and head forward, over a raised area, towards the Magistrates Court. Pass around the right side of Magistrates Court and at the road (Castle Street) turn right. At the roundabout you will see the Reading Central building ahead of you.
