On the way home from work this morning, I thought I would stop somewhere for todays shot. So as it was a fantastic morning I stopped off at the Mansion House.

A little wikipedia history ;
Prospect Park was originally the site of Dirle's Farm and part of the estate of Calcot Park. The farm was turned into a mansion in the 1760s, by Benjamin Child, widower of the famous 'Berkshire Lady', Frances Kendrick, whom he had first met there some years before. He named it after its views over Reading.
The present regency style house, known as the Mansion House, was built by John Liebenrood in the following century. It is a Grade II listed building, currently used as a restaurant. The park was bought by the Reading Corporation in 1901.
