The courtyard elevation indicated by drawing 136 shows three arched doorways with double doors for the coaches. The arches to the left and right of these lead to roof-less rooms (as shown in perspective drawing P.387). These spaces lead to a loose box on the north-west corner (as discussed for drawings 128-129) and further stalls on the north-east corner. A section across the terminal building on the right is given.

Drawing 135 shows the external elevation, its centre articulated by narrow blind arches and wider blind arches on the terminal building. On the far left is the 'loose box' lit by a lunette already discussed (drawing 129).

Sir John Soane's collection includes some 30,000 architectural, design and topographical drawings which is a very important resource for scholars worldwide. His was the first architect’s collection to attempt to preserve the best in design for the architectural profession in the future, and it did so by assembling as exemplars surviving drawings by great Renaissance masters and by the leading architects in Britain in the 17th and 18th centuries and his near contemporaries such as Sir William Chambers, Robert Adam and George Dance the Younger. These drawings sit side by side with 9,000 drawings in Soane’s own hand or those of the pupils in his office, covering his early work as a student, his time in Italy and the drawings produced in the course of his architectural practice from 1780 until the 1830s.

Browse (via the vertical menu to the left) and search results for Drawings include a mixture of Concise catalogue records – drawn from an outline list of the collection – and fuller records where drawings have been catalogued in more detail (an ongoing process).
