Visit Northamptonshire Archives

 

 

Northamptonshire Archives and Heritage Service is pleased to announce that it will be re-opening to the public in December, with all appropriate measures in place to keep researchers and staff safe. We can now take bookings for morning or afternoon sessions on Tuesday 8 to Thursday 10 December and Tuesday 15 to Thursday 17 December.

Places will be limited and any orders for documents, up to a maximum of ten per person, must be received by the Thursday of the week before your visit. You can book an appointment by emailing us at archivist@northamptonshire.gov.uk. No digital copying service will be available at this time.

The Archives and Heritage Service will be closed over Christmas and New Year but will re-open from 5 January 2021.
