In response to the current situation regarding COVID-19, the Archives and Chapter Library are closed. Unfortunately during this time staff will be unable to answer enquiries or assist in research requests. Access to our catalogue and many digital resources is available through this website and we look forward to hearing from you once we are able to reopen.
The printed and manuscript records from the Archives and Chapter Library are open to members of the public for consultation in our search room. If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact us to make an appointment.
The search room is normally open to readers Monday-Friday, 9.30am – 4.45pm (closed 1pm to 2pm for lunch).
We are committed to providing access to the Archives and Chapter Library for users with disabilities. Step-free, wheelchair accessible entry to the public areas of the building is available. Disabled parking spaces and disabled toilet facilities are located nearby. Staff are on hand to assist with research and to offer alternative facilities to aid in your work. If you have any questions about our facilities please contact us in advance of your visit.
Staff are available to answer basic enquiries. However, if your enquiry requires detailed research, you may be advised to visit our search room. Whilst it is sometimes possible to provide an answer by telephone, in order to give a considered response, we prefer to receive enquiries by email or letter.
For all enquiries please contact us.
