Denbighshire Archives Open Day

From Denbighshire Archives (, courtesy of Beryl Evans of the Federation of Family History Societies (

We are holding a Summer Open Day on Saturday June 9th (10am-2pm) to launch a touring exhibition- “Wales Powering the World”.

The exhibition has been created after an all-Wales cataloguing project called ‘Powering the World: Looking at Welsh Industry through Archives’ made some of the most outstanding business collections held in archive services across Wales accessible for the first time.

This exhibition showcases some of the most interesting documents from the collections, reflectingWales’ advances and achievements in coal mining, slate quarrying, copper smelting, engineering, shipping and brewing. These collections hold a wealth of material with fantastic research potential for family and local history.

Come along and take a tour of the archives, see what services we have to offer and view some of our most notable and interesting collections.

The exhibition is free to view and will be with us until Friday 27th July.
