Hello everyone,
I am very pleased to announce that we will welcome volunteers and visitors back to the Record Office from Tuesday 21 July 2020. A lot of time and thought has gone into preparing for this day to make sure that everyone can stay safe.
We have set up a booking system for those who want to come in and carry out research, which requires five working days’ notice. All documents will need to be ordered in advance as there will be no document production on the day. You can find further details on our website:



Note: The Government has updated their guidance on face coverings as from Saturday 8th August. This means that all visitors to the Record Office, as from Monday 10th August, should wear a face covering, unless they are exempt

We are all looking forward to welcoming you back!

Kind regards,

Post: Record Office, Wootton Hall Park, Northampton. NN4 8BQ
Telephone: 01604 362 513 (Tuesday to Thursday between 9-1 only)
