If you are researching family or local history, this is the place to come.
Entry to the Local History Centre is free and volunteers or staff are usually available to assist you in your research.
A small charge is made for use of the computers, film readers and photocopying to support the service.
We are currently only open on Wednesdays, 10am-1pm and 2pm-4pm
