Gloucestershire Heritage Hub

Gloucestershire Archives is officially ‘Good to Go’

From Tuesday 4 August, visitors have been able to pre-book an appointment to access the unique collections on offer at Gloucestershire Archives at the Heritage Hub.


The Heritage Hub has been given the Visit England ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard and mark, which shows that it conforms to the latest Government and public health advice on Covid-19, and that all necessary safety measures have been taken to support social distancing and maintain cleanliness.

Appointments must be pre-booked, and visitors will be asked to book the documents they wish to see in advance by visiting https://forms.gloucestershire.gov.uk/DocumentPreorder. Anyone wishing to donate materials to Gloucestershire Archives, including contributions to the ‘Life in Lockdown’ project, must also book an appointment by contacting archives@gloucestershire.gov.uk (or by calling 01452 425294 for anyone without internet access).

Cllr Lynden Stowe, cabinet member responsible for Archives, said, “I’d like to thank everyone involved for their hard work to make sure that the Heritage Hub is safe to reopen to the public.

I’m really pleased that visitors will now be able to access the fantastic resources that Gloucestershire Archives has to offer, and would just ask them to be mindful of all of the safety measures that are in place to protect them and others.”
