Winnersh Garden Centre

Housing and then light industry followed the railway, and now Winnersh has two stations, Winnersh and Winnersh Triangle, the latter also being the name of the industrial estate that it serves. Modern Winnersh exists mostly as a sleeper town. Relentless housing development on all sides will soon see Winnersh exist as part of an urban continuum between Reading and London.

Winnersh was largely developed during the railway age. The South Eastern Railway built the North Downs Line in 1849, but the station now known as Winnersh was not opened until 1910, and was originally named “Sindlesham and Hurst Halt”, so clearly Winnersh as a village did not exist in the form that it is today (the station is fairly central in the current village). The station was renamed Winnersh Halt in 1930.

In 1840 it was a farm, being named King Street Farm in 1899. The area was then known as Winnersh Corner in the 1920s and 1930s. In 1935 the farm name was changed to Allnatt Farm, and between 1939 and the early 1950s, an imports company Sale Tilney occupied the site, dealing in and assembling tractors from America.

Finally, in 1997, a Sainsbury’s supermarket with 21,400 sq ft of sales area was built on the site. It was opened by the then Chairman Lord (David) Sainsbury himself. The store was almost doubled in size to 39,320 sq ft in 2004. This extension was built over part of the original car park, so Sainsbury’s purchased the adjacent Ruralcrafts Garden Centre (which was originally the H Billyard Nursery between the 1950s-1970s, before becoming Ruralcrafts in the 1980s) to replace those parking spaces over part of their land. In 2015, the Sainsbury’s store was further extended to 46,297 sq ft, to make it similar in size and layout to their large superstore off Bagshot Road in Bracknell. Building over part of their car park for a second time, Sainsbury’s extended over the rest of the former Ruralcrafts site for their replacement car parking spaces.
