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

Why do I need to make an appointment at this Record Office? In some other places I can just turn up.

There is limited space in the Search Room and it is usually quite busy.  If you arrive without an appointment there may not be a space for you to sit down, or a spare microfilm reader for you to use.
