In June 1948 Handley Page took over the former Miles Aircraft Ltd. of Woodley, Reading, and with it the Miles Marathon four-engined feederliner. Handley Page (Reading) produced the aircraft as a navigational trainer for the RAF and also as a short-haul airliner. The Reading-based company was also responsible for development of the HPR.3 Herald airliner, which flew initially with four piston engines in 1955, and was subsequently manufactured with two Rolls-Royce turbines as the Dart Herald.
