Records of the 'Balliol Earthworks Survey' directed by JP Maitland, 1923-1938.

Maps & plans of Bailleul-en-Vimeu site survey

The plans belonging with MISC 95A and MISC 96, the existence of which was known from MISC 95G & MISC 95H, but which could not be found in the Library in 1989 (see under MISC 96), were found there by Alan Tadiello on 16/3/90 and taken for the Archives [ref. MISC 97]

Owing to their large size, these plans have been scanned in several A3 sections.

  • Abbeville SE. Printed Map, 1902, with manuscript annotations showing the sites of the Balliol castle at Bailleul-en-Vimeu and another at Helicourt-en-Ponthieu which is said to be associated with John de Balliol King of Scotland.
  • J Pelham Maitland, plan and sections of the Balliol Castle at Bailleul-en-Vimeu, pencil, 1924.
  • J Pelham Maitland et al ., survey of the site at Bailleul-en-Vimeu (Drawing B by R Gurd, 2 copies) and at Helicourt-en- Ponthieu (Drawing A by R Gurd, 2 copies), 1924.
