Plans can be found in Special Collections & 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 SC&A 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)
