226 drawings dating from 1700 to 2005, with one from the eighteenth century, two from the nineteenth century, then the rest from the 1920s onwards, but most from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

Beginning in the 1960s there are many drawings showing renovation and works on the banqueting house (often called the gothic pavilion), in particular proposed public toilets from the 1970s.

Drawings created in the late 1970s show reinforced-concrete slabs for the keep. There are sheets from a topographic survey of the site from 1989. There are also photogrammetric surveys of the keep from 1985 and 1992 and a topographical survey of it from 1992.

From 1997 and 1998 there are a group of planting and fencing plans for the Grotto.
