Tilehurst Directory

Tilehurst is a suburb of the town of Reading in the English county of Berkshire. It is also, with different boundaries, a civil parish.

Tilehurst is situated on the high ground some three miles (5 km) to the west of central Reading. This high ground rises gradually from central Reading with its highest point at the extreme west of Tilehurst. The area is bounded to the north by the valley of the River Thames, to the south by the valley of the River Kennet and to the west by the valley of the Rivers Pang and Bourne. In contrast to the gentle rise from the east, the drops into all three of these valleys are steep, as instanced by the steep road inclines of Kentwood, Langley, Norcot and Sulham Hills.
