Contacting the Archivist

Enquiries concerning the content of the archive, conditions of use, and to arrange appointments, please telephone, e-mail, or write to the archivist. An appointment is always necessary, but letters of introduction are not. The archivist understands that many researchers, particularly those working on local history or family history, may not have formal college or university affiliations. If you are unfamiliar with archival material, please ask for assistance; the archivist is always happy to help.

The archive is open to external readers from Tuesday to Thursday. Normal office hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and until lunchtime on Thursdays. Please note that the readers' space is up a very steep staircase. If you have mobility problems, please tell the archivist and arrangements can be made for documents to be read in the library.

Visitors should go to the Porters' Lodge at Tom Gate and ask the duty porter to ring through.
