Archives and local history

The Archives & Local Studies service collects, preserves and makes available documents and publications. These cover all aspects of life in the borough from the earliest times to the present day.

We operate a full enquiry service and are once again in a position to consider donations.

An appointment is not always necessary but it is recommended. A large percentage of our original documents are now held off site and need to be ordered in advance.
