Shelving delivery 2018


During the extended closure this year we will be relocating the archives from Strongroom 3 to a newly converted strongroom, to improve storage conditions.

In addition to the closure for relocation work, Durham County Council is closing most of its buildings in the period between Christmas and the New Year.

I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
