On the map linked below, you should be able to see the Abbey Gatehouse, the Abbot's walk, and Forbury- part of the massive twentieth-century traffic calming system that was installed in Reading in the 'sixties. You can also see an Abbey School, but that isn't Jane's school- it's much newer.
For an amusing look at Jane Austen and Reading Abbey, there is a nice little webpage Linked Here . It shows you the Abbey ruins, but not the gatehouse itseslf, unfortunately. But it's still worth a visit, I think...;-)
