Reading's Museum of English Rural Life reopens after £3m renovation

The Museum of English Rural Life has reopened after an extensive £3m renovation programme that closed the exhibition to the public for two years.

The collection, which is based in Reading in Berkshire, celebrates the way people in rural and agricultural areas live.

Pieces in the collection include well-preserved farming equipment, and a tapestry last shown to the public at the Festival of Britain in 1951.
