The Record Office is CLOSED until further notice
Focusing on the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers remains our top priority. In line with national guidance and government recommendations we will close our Record Office from 4pm on Wednesday 4 November. The closure of our Record Office, along with other cultural and heritage attractions across the nation, will mean tougher times ahead for those working in the sector. We hope to continue to support researchers by responding to enquiries and providing copies of records where possible. Please make use of our online catalogues and resources. We will let you know when bookings are open again. We’re all in this together and will make sure our approach reflects the latest government guidelines. Keep up to date by visiting www.gov.uk/coronavirus and follow our social media channels.
Our popular Mystery Monday Facebook feature asks for your help to identify people and places in our collection of historic images – who knows? You may be able to assist! Our Twitter feed gives local links to national trends and regularly includes ‘live action’ tweets of events from the past, such as World War One battles involving local regiments.
We are keen to hear your ideas and comments and always try to reply to people who contact us via social media. If you have a question about our collections or want to make a request for information please contact us via email or use our contact details below as this is the most efficient way for us to respond.
