Scope and content:
File documents an unexecuted proposal for the long-term redevelopment of Lord Eliot's estate in Port Eliot, St Germans, Cornwall, United Kingdom. Cedric Price's objective was "to increase the enjoyment and delight of the total property while in no way reducing its effectiveness as an agricultural unit" (Price with Murray 1971, 27). Drawings include site plans and plans of the existing house, and design development drawings for the estate, which locate woodland areas, a viaduct, a tidal estuary, and important views from the house. Renovations to the existing house are indicated on some of the drawings. Some material from this file was published in "Cedric Price Supplement No. 2", 'Architectural Design', vol. 41, (January 1971), 27. File also contains material for a later executed design for a garden maze. Material in the file was produced between 1903 and 1991, but predominantly between 1966 and 1980 and between 1983 and 1987.

File contains a conceptual drawing, design development drawings, reference drawings, photographic materials, and textual records.
