The Record Office is CLOSED until further notice
Focusing on the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers is our top priority. In line with national guidance and government recommendations we have taken the decision to close the record office until further notice. We will not be able to undertake research or give collections advice at this time, but will endeavour to respond to any enquiries, if possible, but this service is dependent upon staff availability. We will put any further updates about the service on our website. We’re encouraging all our customers to stay safe in these unprecedented times by keeping up to date with the latest government guidance at www.gov.uk/coronavirus
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.
