The principal element in the collection is a series of plans dating from 1900-1913, and mainly, although not exclusively, concerning Alfreton, Long Eaton and Pinxton, Derbyshire and Nottingham. The majority are of houses, ranging from large town residences to terraced houses, but also including shops, schools, factories and a church. Most are identified by name or owner, but a significant quantity of sketches of internal and external features lack any reference to particular properties. A few plans by other local architects (Dodd, Gill and King, Percy Ballard) are included with Taylor's papers.
With the plans survive a number of letters and legal papers (relating to property designed by Taylor), and some drawings from the publication, The Architect.
