All that now remains of the Abbey walls is their rubble cores. The facing stones were either stolen or sold in the period after the dissolution of the Monasteries. The open space seen here would have once had a roof and comprised the Dormitory. The only structures which remain intact from the foundation of the Abbey are the Hospitium and the Abbey Gateway, which can be seen in my other pictures of Reading.
