Temporary changes to services at Carlisle Archive Centre

From Wednesday 27 March 2024 we are making the following changes to production of original records:

  • 48 hours' notice is required for bookings to view original records.
  • Researchers wishing to view original records must provide a list 48 hours in advance.
  • Any additions to lists on the day of research will be limited to three items.
  • If there are no researchers booked for either the morning or afternoon session, the map room for viewing original records will be closed during this period.
  • Researchers without a booking will be permitted only when the map room is already open for booked researchers.
  • Drop-in researchers will be limited to three items.
  • We remind all researchers that no records will be produced after 4.30pm.

There are no changes to viewing secondary sources and microfilm records - this search room will still operate on a drop-in basis.
