This English layout is one used in the Print Workshop of St. Bride Foundation in London in 2014, As with Stephenson Blake and London School of Printing and Aspinall the numerals are in the centre bay, unlike Heffer and Lindley & Maggs where they are in the right hand bay. As with many layouts, there are numerous small differences, for example compared with the London |School of Printing lay, thin spaces replace hair spaces, mid spaces are moved to where em quads usually go, and the old mid/thin box is now used for quotation marks. The q remains in the traditional position above . rather than be moved closer to u and as the — remains in its more traditional position, the fl ligature has had to be in the top right hand row. Both London and St Bride have £ and & in the right hand bottom row, where Æ and Œ used to go (e.g. Caslon of 1897).
The empty typecase configuration is that of the Southward 1875 Improved Double Case.
