The "Plan for Plymouth" was the combined work of city engineer and surveyor J. Paton- Watson, and noted city planning authority Professor Sir Patrick Abercrombie. It was a brave effort and by and large it worked, and generally speaking it worked well and above all ...still works well. As in all my sites, I bring you the hard to get material, and in this case it is these images above, all taken directly from the original document.Technical details on the plan are easier to get in planning publications.
