Making copies with the Archives' equipment

Please see our Getting copies of documents and publications page for details of what is permitted in terms of copying. Generally speaking, you can use the equipment in our public research room to print images up to A3 in size.

Options available

· Coloured copies from the printer linked to the PC with access to digital images of inclosure awards and maps @ £1.00 per copy

· Coloured copies from the printer linked to the People's Network PCs @ £0.25 per copy

· Black & white copies from the microfilm/fiche printer @ £1.00 per copy

· Black & white copies from the photocopier @ £0.50 per copy

Please pay retrospectively at reception for all copies. You can do this until 15 minutes before closing time.

Restrictions on photocopying

Some items are not suitable for photocopying, such as:

· Coloured items (the photocopier's light can have a degrading effect on them)

· Documents with wax seals (these are fragile and easily damaged)

· Documents that are bound at the top or bottom (placing these on the photocopier could strain the join and damage the sheets)

· Bound volumes (placing these on the photocopier could damage the binding and weaken the spine)

· Original parish registers (for a similar reason to bound volumes, but many can be copied from microfilm or microfiche)

This list is displayed beside the photocopier in the public research room.
