The Plotlands Archive

The Plotlands Archive is an online photographic database of unconventional houses and chalets and their vernacular construction methods originally built during the interwar period and those which have since been adapted and modified.

Situated on coastal strips and in river valleys, few estates from that period still remain. The archive is a celebration of resourcefulness, creativity and character, recording many unique materials and designs largely unseen within urban housing developments. The database provides searchable access to houses by site name, material and construction type. Locations include Humberston Fitties, The Brooklands Estate at Jaywick Sands, The Bel Air Estate at Seawick, Leysdown on Sea, Almere Ferry on the River Dee, Eccles-on-Sea Norfolk and others.
