503 sheets largely from the early twentieth-century, the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. These include plans of reinforcement work on the church circa 1920 and a survey of its transepts and crossings in the early 1990s.

There are many drawings of building work ranging from the conversion of buildings at Abbey Farm to a works unit, museum, caretaker's cottage and stores across the period, to the development of the custodian's cottage in the mid twentieth-century, and improvements to visitor facilities and the building of a new entrance building in the 1980s.

Others of interest include a series of plans from the late 1980s showing tile patterns on the site and drawings from the early 1990s of grave slabs and their inscriptions. Additional items date mostly from the twentieth-century and include many photogrammetric elevations of the extant walls and features of the Abbey. Most recent drawings include items from a survey by Aedas Geomatics made in 2014.

There are three sheets with 'A' suffixes - MP/RIE0186A, 312A and 314A.
