From the Federation of Family History Societies (

Canterbury Cathedral Archives will reopen to the public on Tuesday 22nd January 2013, following its closure for extensive building works. This work has been made possible through a generous grant from the Albert Reckitt Charitable Trust. From 22nd January, the reading room for the Archives and Library will be open weekly from Tuesday to Thursday, 9.15 to 16.45; lunchtime closures may occasionally be necessary. Please enquire about Saturday morning opening. Appointments are advisable; bookings can be made for a reading desk, a microfilm/fiche reader or a computer.Bookings can be made by email from 7th January 2013, and in addition by telephone from 14th January. Please email or telephone 01227-865330. To celebrate our reopening, tea and cakes will be served on the morning of 22nd January. The Archives and Library staff will very much look forward to welcoming researchers back to the reading room on that day.
