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 plan shows the new letting ground on the Bishop of London's estate in pink without shading, along with the reservoirs of the Grand Junction Canal Company and the ground plot of the Great Western Railway terminus.

The title of this plan appears at top right, with compass rose at top left and scale bar at the foot of the plate.
