Visit Northamptonshire Archives

The Archives and Heritage Service will be re-opening to the public by appointment only from Tuesday 1 June.

Numbers allowed in the public rooms at any one time will be limited and all government guidelines on keeping safe in indoor spaces will be followed. All documents to be consulted will need to be ordered in advance.

Bookings will open from Monday 17 May. Further details to follow.

Your patience as we work to bring the service back into operation is appreciated. The service is very short-staffed at present and responses to enquiries and copying orders may take longer than usual. Please allow 10 working days for any reply.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the service.

Please email any enquiries to
