165 sheets showing the site of Regulbium Roman station and associated structures including the remains of St Mary's church and its towers, and the coastguard station (demolished circa 1986).
The set begins with a negative copy of an Ordnance Survey map from the early twentieth century, and continues with a number of drawings from the mid-1920s and the 1930s, including notice and inscription designs, plans of the coastguard station, and various sheets showing the church and its windows, foundations and turf levels, the Roman station, a new postcard stall, an exhibition case and a fence extension.
There is a site plan from 1933 showing land transferred, which also appears in various revised forms from 1955 and 1965.
A series of drawings from 1943 and 1944 show sea wall maintenance issues, and there is also a guardianship area plan from 1945.
From the 1950s there are sheets showing the apron protecting the church, and sketches relating to work on the church's towers.
There are drawings from 1963 relating to a new spiral staircase for the church tower, and also some protection work plans from between 1966 and 1968, and survey sheets from 1967.
Several sheets from 1978 (some revised to 1979 and 1980) are from a survey of the beach and cliff alongside the Roman station and church. There is a copy of an Ordnance Survey map from 1981, drawings of sea defences from 1985, and sheets relating to the demolition of the coastguard station from 1986.
