Glamorgan Archives Blog: Discovering Glamorgan’s Past

A statement from Glamorgan Archives in light of the current Covid-19 situation.

Updated 28th August 2020

Glamorgan Archives remains closed to the public due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Staff are continuing to put in place all the measures that are needed in order to safely reopen to the public as quickly as we are able.  We hope to be able to update you with a reopening date shortly.

Our research and copying services are once again available.  From 1st September we will be starting to offer online one-to-one consultations where you will be able to speak to a member of staff about your research and view documents from within our holdings.  Details of all these services can be found on the ‘Shop’ page of our website under ‘Research’ and ‘Copying’.

We are continuing to answer enquiries by email, so if you have a general query please contact us.
