Building works affecting Gloucestershire Archives

We will be closed for 2 weeks from Monday 18th September 2017, reopening on Tuesday 3rd October 2017.

This is to allow Gloucestershire Archives and its partners the opportunity to move into the newly remodelled public space known as the Heritage Hub.

Until then, we have builders on site so find out the latest information about opening hours and parking. You will need to order your documents before you visit.

Do you have a story to share or a photograph you would like to see maintained in the Constabulary Archive? 

Why not come along to Police HQ at Waterwells on Saturday 22 April 2017 between 10am and 3pm where the Archive team will be on hand to copy your photos and record your reminiscences. Tea and cake will be available on the day!

We also want to identify people in photos already held in the Archives – perhaps you could help with this?

We hope to include some of the content on the new Gloucestershire Constabulary Archives website:
