The South Transept
off the Forbury Gardens, Reading
 
 
The picturesque ruins of the South Transept are all the remains of Reading Abbey Church. The height of the extant walls gives some impressions of the enormity of the original building and their curved lines show the transept to have been of the usual Norman type with small semi-circular chapels extending off to the east. A small memorial plaque records the closeness of the grave of King Henry I.
