In 1875, a development and new confronting was arranged in Victorian Gothic style by the draftsman Alfred Waterhouse, including partial annihilation of the 1780s structure anyway holding the middle hall. This development added a gathering chamber and working environments to the design, and the clock overshadow its section is as yet an undeniable Reading milestone.
Alfred Waterhouse was thusly drawn nearer to design a further extension including another show lobby, display and library, yet this was thought unreasonably expensive. Maybe the board decided to hold an arrangement rivalry, and this was won by Thomas Lainson with an arrangement that continued with Waterhouse’s Gothic styling. Again an Italianate style was used for within, and Lainson arranged another Baroque style case for the organ, which was updated and moved into the new show corridor. The show entryway opened in 1882, and was followed by the verifiable focus and library in 1883-4.
A last development opened in 1897 and contained an expansion to the library and a work of art show. This was arranged by W R Howell, and recalls the veneer for Valpy Street. In 1943, the southern completion of the design persevered through certified damage during an air strike. The scars of this attack remained perceptible until the recovery work of the 1990s. By 1951 the organization of the town had overwhelmed the available workplaces in the Town Hall, and the chamber decided to build new community working environments.
Finally in 1976, the city working environments moved out to the as of late built Reading Civic Center. In 1985 the library moved to another focal library developing King’s Road, leaving simply the display and show lobby being utilized. After some conversation, plans to obliterate the Town Hall and supplant it with another social community were dropped, and in 1986 rebuilding of the design started with show corridor being shut. The maintenance was done in 2000, bringing the show lobby once again into usage and giving a couple of new displays to the verifiable focus and craftsmanship exhibition.
