217 drawings from across the twentieth and early-twenty-first centuries, with a large number from the 1980s and 1990s.

There are several drawings of the prior's house and its rooms in the early- and late-twentieth century.

From the 1950s there are plans for a new custodian's hut and public lavatories, and from the late-1970s and 1980s plans for an exhibition building and shop.

Two oversized drawings date from 1970 and show an area to the west of the priory. There are drawings from excavations of the outer court made in the late-1970s, and from the late-1980s come drawings concerning electrical services and machinery for a workshop and stores.

There are a number of sketches and related drawings made between 1995 and 1998 showing details of the prior's lodgings and associated structures.
