732 sheets dating from 1610 to 2011. Many are copies of drawings of the Pendennis headland and the Henrician Castle from 1715. In 1904 as built drawings of the Royal Artillery Barracks were produced as was an Ordnance Survey revision in 1913. During 1932 a survey of the castle was undertaken by the H.M. Office of Works for a schedule of demolition.
Plans of the castle were produced for the publication of guidebooks. Drawings were also made for the proposed cafe and youth hostel in the barracks. Plowman Craven and associates produced a topographic survey of the castle area during 1974 and in 1976 designs for a proposed H.M coastguard rescue HQ to be sited below the half moon battery (this building was constructed in 1979 and is now the Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centre).
Many plans, sections and elevations were made to highlight repair works required and modernisation in many places in the castle. Sheets for the installation of modern amenities at the buildings on the site and plans for the improvement of access were also produced during the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.
There are also photographic representations of the painted panorama in the Battery Observation Post dating from 2008 and 2011, and drawings relating to a holiday cottage. Two oversized sheets produced during the late twentieth century are copies of topographic plans of the peninsula and the castle.
