Plans can be found in Special Collections and Archives (SCA), located on the ground floor of the Sydney Jones Library.
To search for available plans, enter the terms 'Building Plans' / 'Elevation Plans'.
To search for a particular building, use the archives search box, put in the name of the building you are looking for, find what papers the plans are contained in, and make a note of the reference number. E.g. a search on the Ancient Chapel of Toxteth will show that the plans are contained in the papers of Quentin Hughes, D71/5/7.
Contact SCA staff to arrange an appointment to view the material.
If your search finds no references to plans for the building you are looking for, please try the following alternatives :
- Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals
- The Builder journal
- Liverpool City Council Planning Department (Municipal Building, Dale Street, Liverpool L2 2DH Tel: 0151 233 3021). Digitised copies of planning applications submitted since 2007 are also available via the Liverpool City Council Planning Explorer.
- RIBA (if the architect known)
- For a church or similar building, contact the building itself
