Due to the importance of this area we have written a separate section on Lower Earley.
Although seen as a mostly an newer development surprisingly settlements in the Lower Earley area date back from The Bronze age. Lower Earley is made up of a massive housing estate that was at the time of construction one of the largest housing developments in Europe. Lower Earley is the Southern area of Earley and mainly contains this housing estate constructed in the 70’s and 80’s. The most recent addition was a large Police Headquarters.
Lower Earley comes under Wokingham Borough Council even though it is part of Reading

Thames Valley Business Park is in Earley and is the UK Headquarters for BG Group, Microsoft, ING Direct, SG1, Oracle & Regus. There 5 schools in the area run by Wokingham Borough Council.
Pest Control in Lower Earley: Lower Earley has always provided many wasp nests, far more than say areas nearby of similar size, Whitley for example. It may be that the micro climate and food sources favour wasps in the area or it may be that most people own their own houses so are more likely to pay for a service than other areas.
