Archives and Local Studies have countless hundreds of thousands of items which amount to almost 10 kilometres of books and documents. We can’t provide full details of all of these here. However, we have produced some factsheets on the most popular types of information.
Not all archive material is stored onsite and we may require notice of the items you wish to see. Please contact us to confirm when we can retrieve items for you.
Please contact us if you have queries about these, or to ask us if we have other items relevant to your research.
