This plan shows the intention to remove Bethlem ('Bedlam') Hospital and replace it with the ''London Amphitheatre'' which would comprise at least 60 houses with gardens, stables and coach-houses suitable for ''opulent Citizens''. This complex will be linked directly to the Royal Exchange via a 80-ft wide new street.
