Lighting at Shropshire Archives is currently being upgraded. Please order documents well in advance if you can, as document retrieval may be affected.

Opening times

  • Wednesday 10am-4pm
  • Thursday 10am-4pm
  • Friday 10am-4pm
  • Saturday: First in the month 10am-4pm (advance orders only)

Please order all original documents and books by 1pm. If you are visiting on a Saturday, you must request all items by 1pm on the previous Friday.

Please book in advance in order to guarantee your space. Details of any possible restrictions on access to documents are also given on this page.

You will need a Shropshire Archives reader’s ticket to view original documents, photographs, electoral registers and some books. You can register in advance for this.

During January and February we will be having our lights replaced with LED bulbs to help reduce our carbon footprint.  We will try and minimise disruption to the public areas but there may be instances when certain shelves of records are temporarily inaccessible.  If you can order in advance this will be helpful.
