George Wightwick

George Wightwick was an architect and writer on architecture. Wightwick established himself in Plymouth, and was then invited to join the practice of John Foulston, the architect who had designed Plymouth's public buildings.

He left almost all his drawings, watercolours, and papers, including his manuscript lectures, to the RIBA, his architectural work largely contained within six carefully catalogued volumes.
