We also have records of businesses, hospitals, local organisations and individuals, as well as an extensive local studies reference collection and much more on 6 miles of shelving.
Our online catalogue
Our online catalogue includes lists of many of our archive collections as well as our local studies library.
There are images of some of our documents and photographs. In many cases, if you want more information you will need to visit, request a copy of the document(s) through our Image Service or ask our researcher to search through a document and transcribe details.
The catalogue is updated and expanded regularly. Please be aware that not all our lists are online yet, so if you can’t find what you are looking for, you may need to contact us or visit and check our printed lists and index cards.
Some of our lists are also on The National Archives’ Discovery catalogue. On this, you can also search for contact details for other local archives.
