386 drawings largely of the presbytery, nave, north transept and proposed visitor facilities, but also of the early-medieval monastery, Abbey Lodge, the banqueting hall, Abbey House and cottages on site. A large number are from the 1920s, particularly of the presbytery and proposals for a museum. There are also many from the 1990s including reconstruction drawings of the north transept, earthwork surveys of the site and surrounding area, contour surveys and photogrammetric elevations of the abbey church.

Additional sheets added are for the construction of a new shop on the site, with many rectified photographic elevations of the extant walls some of which are annotated to show damaged brick work and areas for repair.

There are also many oversized sheets, including photogrammetric surveys of the north transept and the presbytery, and plans and profiles of mouldings in the abbey church.
