About us

Glamorgan Archives main offices

Welcome to Glamorgan Archives’ website

We collect records relating to the history of Glamorgan and its people. Records can range from:

  • papers,
  • plans,
  • photographs,
  • parchments,
  • personal diaries, and
  • council minutes.

For more details see our collection policy.

We are particularly interested in locating records in imminent danger of destruction or decay so that they may be saved for future generations.

Catalogue

We catalogue records so that people can locate material which may be of interest to them.
