Here is the clean plan I cobbled together for Lime Grove D, for any of you who want to sketch up your own layouts or whatever :)

The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.

And the press get fed the scapegoats,

That's a nice sharp drawing, Marc. I can see most of the little numbers around the grid area. They seem to run consecutively around the perimeter, depending on where you start counting and which direction you count in. The one thing I didn't see on the drawing is the scale of the grid. Are those in 1 or 2-foot increments, and are those metric or imperial feet (if they are feet, that is)?

I mean, it does say "1/4" Scale" on the drawing, presumable meaning that 1/4th-inch on the paper equals 1 foot on the floor. But what size paper is the drawing intended to be printed on? (And again is that measure imperial or metric?)

I believe the original ones  were one foot per square.

Can't remember which were 2ft per square.... but I have just woken up :D

Just as the Cunard Liners always ended in IA (Lusitania, Carpathia, etc) and White Star Liners always ended in IC (Britannic, Titanic, etc), there is an easy way to remember Dino:

Tv Centre = 2 x 2 meTriC

rIverside, ealIng and lImegrove = Imperial

Two metric feet, though.... right? 2x30cm?

Most of these are meant to be on A0.

The ISO system was adopted in the UK in 1959. But even at school in the 1980s I do remember Foolscap paper. So I suppose it could be one of these.... (though Foolscap is the only one I am familiar with).

Yes, Imperial and metric feet (with TV Centre using 2 x 2 metric feet grids (600 mm by 600 mm)).

I would think the original studio plans for Lime Grove were drawn on what used to be called "Antiquarian" paper (31.0 x 53.0 inches or 787.4 x 1346.2 mm). As Marc says, A0 is the nearest modern equivalent being 33.1 by 46.8 inches (841 by 1189 mm).
