Nottinghamshire Archives refurbishment

Forwarded by the Federation of Family History Societies (

Nottinghamshire Archives is pleased to announce that work to extend the strong rooms and refurbish the public areas will commence on 31st March 2014.

We will endeavour to keep any disruption to a minimum; however, there may be times when selected collections are temporarily unavailable. On 20th October the service will close for approximately three months.

Important dates

31st March 2014 Building work commences. From this date no car parking facilities will be available.

20th October 2014 Service closures for refurbishment of public and staff areas

Early February 2015 service reopens (with no car park)

Late March 2015 – car park becomes available

May 2015 – official reopening

Why are we doing this?

Once the works are completed we will have:
· secured enough storage to acquire historical documents for the next 20 years
· a new storage area with improved standards of security, fire, flood and environmental control
· provided two meeting rooms, with one on the ground floor
· improved visitor facilities
· modernised the service offer
