If you live in Reading you'll know that Smelly Alley is the common name for Union Street, a pedestrianised alley that runs between the two main shopping streets of Reading. It had an open sewer running down in in the 16th century, that's why it is known as "Smelly Alley", nothing to do with the fishmongers! I've worked at the fishmongers for more than 50 years, and I've a great collection of stories about the alley, and anecdotes about Reading. If you are a local group from the Reading area then this might be the talk for you!
"That talk was the second you have done for our group and it didn’t disappoint!"
