Durham County Record Office: the official archive service for County Durham and Darlington

Record Office Christmas closure

Monday 2 December 2019 until Friday 3 January 2020

The Search Room will be closed from Monday 2 December 2019 until Friday 3 January 2020. It reopens on Monday 6 January 2020.

We'll use this time to start preparing over five miles of archives for a safe move, in due course, to the Durham History Centre. 

The pre-Christmas closure is followed by the usual Durham County Council building closure between Christmas and New Year.

Our enquiry service will continue as normal except between 24 December 2019 and 1st January 2020.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
