Possible merger for Denbighshire and Flintshire archives

Denbighshire County Archives (http://archives.denbighshire.gov.uk), currently based in the former gaol at Ruthin, may be forced to close and merge with Flintshire Archives (www.flintshire.gov.uk/en/LeisureAndTourism/Records-and-Archives/Home.aspx).

The suggested plan is to replace the facilities with a new centre at Mold next to Theatr Clwyd, at a cost of £16.6 million, and with work expected to commence in 2022. The proposals have not gone down too well with users of the facilities, with whom there appears to have been no consultation.
