Information on visiting The Record Office from 19th July 2021
We are looking forward to welcoming more people back to the Record Office. However the health & wellbeing of visitors and staff remain our key priority. We are therefore taking a more gradual approach to lifting our Covid safety measures. We continue to encourage the use of face coverings for visitors and staff. Visits are still by pre-booking only although unlimited items can now be ordered on demand again. Please see 'Book Your Visit' on our home page for revised booking procedures. Thank you for your patience whilst we implement our gradual reopening plan. UPDATE: The Record Office will be open on SATURDAY mornings 21 August, 4 September and 18 September. We will be CLOSED FOR STOCKTAKING from 25 September to 9 October (inclusive).
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.
