A MANSION which used to be home to the BBC in Reading is up for sale.

Caversham Park, a Grade II listed manor house located two miles from central Reading, has been put on the market.

The present building, inspired by Italian palaces, was built in 1850 after a fire.

The Victorian stately home sits within around 93 acres of gardens and parkland in the suburb of Caversham.

Previously, it had been on the market but was withdrawn for unknown reasons.

Now, the land has been put up for sale again by the real estate consultancy, Lambert Smith Hampton.

Caversham Park has an extensive history with the BBC Monitoring Service and BBC Radio Berkshire occupying the premises from 1943 until 2018.
