Most plans are subject to some damage because they have been rolled for many years. Our Conservators need to assess rolled plans before they are issued in the reading room. If you are interested in viewing rolled plans please contact reading room staff five (5) working days (not including Saturdays) ahead of your visit. You will need to provide a list of all the plans you wish to access on the day.
