Coronavirus update

Gloucestershire County Council are closing Gloucestershire Archives @ the Heritage Hub from Monday 23 March until further notice, due to the current issues relating to Covid-19. 

Gloucestershire Family History Society @ the Heritage Hub has also closed their service until further notice. 

Every effort will be made to continue offering essential services such as access to records for legal reasons.  Similarly, the Registration Service will continue to run a copy certificates service from the site. 

Look out for updates from the archives on social media and online.  If you have a few minutes you might like to #ExploreYourArchiveAtHome.  You can search our collections online or browse or contribute to our online mapping resource Know Your Place

We look forward to welcoming back our customers, volunteers, partners and friends in due course.

Gloucestershire County Council has signed a new contract with Beard Construction who took over from where our previous contractors, Lakehouse, left off.  Good progress is being made and the building work is due to be completed in August 2019. 

Three miles of shelving has now been added to the new strongrooms, the front entrance is being completed and the tarmacking to complete the parking is scheduled for the week beginning 22 July.  Anyone visiting us should follow the signs to the temporary entrance for the next few weeks.  Please also check in advance if blue badge parking is required or you wish to deposit new collections of archives and we will make appropriate arrangements for you.
