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 appears at top left, with compass rose at top right and scale bar at bottom left. Also at bottom left is a key to the land acquired by the Grand Junction Canal Company from the Bishop of London. This the area in red on the plan, which also shows the final proposals for the new street plan at Bayswater.
