Designs for alterations to the Devonport Workhouse, Duke Street, Plymouth: plan, elevation and details of the new facade

RIBA82997
Wightwick, George (1802-1872)
NOTES: These designs are for one of the many alterations to the existing building which dated from 1777. A new workhouse was built in Wolseley Road in 1854 to the designs of Alfred Norman, a pupil of Wightwick's. This design is one of a number of drawings bound into five volumes entitled 'Architectural works of George Wightwick', made between 1832 and 1850. Wightwick instructed his articled pupils to make this detailed set of retrospective drawings to illustrate every building of importance he had designed. The drawings were intended to serve both as a record of Wightwick's completed buildings and as a method of conveying to his students the design process from initial working design to finished structure.
