Notes

Several sets of detail drawings for the 'finishing' would have been made for tendering by various tradesmen. Soane's office 'Day book 1791' has an entry under Norwich Castle for 2 May: 'copying working drawgs / of Ironwork &c' Chawner' and 'Wiliams / Blogg'. Another entry for 3 May 1791 has: 'Norwich Castle / Chawner / Blogg / Meyer / Williams ... drawing the workg drawgs / which are this day sent'. Thomas Chawner (1774-1851, pupil 1789-1796) and Frederick Meyer (1777-?, pupil 1791-9) were pupils, William Blogg (1761-?) an improver who was employed in the office for just four months and Williams may have been Richard Williams a clerk from 1789 to1803.

It would have been important to the Norwich City Corporation to know the costs for the project and the finishing - because of the scale of the works - would have been extensive. See general note for costs.

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).
