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 landscapes calendar 2019


The eagle-eyed regular user of the website will have noticed that we've changed the background picture!

You may remember that last year we ran a photography competition celebrating the beauty of the Gloucestershire landscape. Three winning photos were selected to form feature walls inside the new Heritage Hub building, and these, together with nine runners up were included in the Gloucestershire landscapes calendar.

During 2019 we'll be showcasing the successful photographs by changing the background photo on the website so that more people can enjoy this incredible work.

  • January by John Bridgen. Tetbury. (Feature wall photo)
  • February by Jenny Baddeley. Horsley.
  • March by Rosemary MacLeod. View of River Severn and Forest of Dean. (Feature wall photo)
  • April by John Bridgen. Cranham Common.

  • September by Malc King. Sudeley Hill.
