Notes

Drawings 31 and 32 seem to indicate the lines of force acting on the inverted foundation arches. Drawing 32 also shows some alterations to the depth of the side-aisle arches, suggesting that Soane altered the foundation arches (as the previous site record drawings also suggest).

Drawing 33 shows the side-aisle arch with a plan of the pier base (with a circular opening to carry the chimney flue in its centre). Iron ties are also shown, securing the masonry together.

Drawing 34 shows the cross-section counterpart to the longitudinal section shown in drawing 25. It shows the view of the side-aisle arches that drawings 28 to 29 represent.

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).
