The development of Paddington began at the end of the Napoleonic wars, when the Bishop of London granted permission for building on his estate north of Hyde Park. Under Gutch's supervision, works continued into the 1850s, extending to Bayswater and the Edgware and Harrow Roads.

The title of this plan is at top left, with scale bar at bottom left and explanatory note at bottom right. Also at bottom right is key to land belonging to the Bishop of London's estate. This is highlighted in green on the plan. Cockrell's proposed new roads on the estate are indicated by a double dotted line.
