Whitfield's square scheme is scrambled


I read with interest the article on Paternoster Square (AJ 30.10.03) but I did notice a slight inaccuracy in the attribution of the various blocks shown on pages 32 and 33.

The block attributed to Sir William Whitfield with Sheppard Robson, known now as 1 Paternoster Square, was in fact a Sir William Whitfield with Sidell Gibson building. The building to the immediate west of the Chapter House, known as building 6 within the original scheme designations, was in fact the Whitfield Sheppard Robson collaboration.
