Throughout 2019 staff at the Record Office will be increasing their work on the preparation of the archive collections so they can be relocated to The Box.

From Tuesday 2 April it will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays and closed on Wednesdays and Fridays.

The Record Office will close at the end of Thursday 29 August for the move to The Box. The archive service will resume as normal at The Box in April 2020.
