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. 

Project activities

Gloucestershire Archives offers specialist advice to groups in Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire to help community projects develop formal and informal learning activities

A heritage project is a great way to involve your community in fun activities and inspire learning. It's also an opportunity for volunteers to develop new skills as well as to share their experience and knowledge. 

There are plenty of examples online of exciting and successful local heritage projects. The Community Archives and Heritage Group website (see the links to the right) offers lots of ideas from projects across the country.

You can find further links on the right to the websites created as a result of three of our successful partnership projects.  These are projects connected with Gloucester's Rugby heritage, celebrating the distinct communities of Barton and Tredworth in Gloucester, and exploring the industrial and social history of the Fielding & Platt engineering firm.

Our staff will be pleased to hear from you and to discuss ideas for your project. We can also share our extensive experience of working with volunteers. Please Contact us for more details.
