County Record Office Notices

Pembroke Record Office

The Pembrokeshire Record Office is moving to new premises. As a consequence, opening times have been revised in order to allow staff time to prepare the office for the move. Therefore, from the week commencing 11th June 2012 opening hours will be:

Monday & Tuesday: 9.00am – 4.45pm

Friday: 9.00am – 4.15pm

Last documents are issued 15 minutes before closing. The Record Office does not normally close for lunch.

The Hive, Worcestershire

The Hive, Europe's first joint University and Public Library, opens its doors next Monday, 2nd July. It will be open seven days a week from 8.30am to 10pm. The Hive contains records from both branches of the Record Offices, Worcester City Library and the University of Worcester Library as well as Worcestershire Historic Environment and Archaeology Service (WHEAS). Most of the records available at the Worcester Library and History Centre will be on open access each day. Original documents will not be available on a Sunday.

West Yorkshire Archive Service

West Yorkshire Archive Service will close its Sheepscar premises on Thursday 30th August 2012. These premises have proved inadequate for a modern archive service in terms of both public access and modern standards for archive storage.

In order to ensure that it does not lose its ‘place of deposit’ status currently under review by The National Archives, the service is relocating to West Yorkshire Joint Services HQ at Morley, Leeds. It is planned that the new improved services will open in November 2012.
