If you know where we are and are able to visit during our regular opening hours (Wednesdays 11am-2pm), just drop in! Occasionally we are closed so it's best you get on our email mailing list where you'll be notified about any changes (and find out about interesting things going on too).

There is limited parking at the back and there are good public transport links. If you need directions and/or want to arrange for a more suitable day/time for your visit, please get in touch.

The ground floor is wheelchair accessible (via a moderately inclined concrete ramp), but please note that we unfortunately do not have accessible toilet facilities. However, St Ann’s Health Centre is just around the corner, offering good accessible toileting facilities every weekday until 6.30pm (or 1pm on Thursdays). We know that this arrangement is far from ideal and we hope to remedy this situation as soon as possible.

Please note that some materials may be stored off site and would need to be requested by users. If in doubt, please get in touch before visiting us.

Please note that due to privacy issues any materials which were not originally designed for publication (internal documents, correspondence, etc.) cannot be routinely accessed unless they are older than 40 years. However, if you want to request special access please just get in touch. If you wish to access such materials for a specific research project, we might well be able to help you out anyway (e.g. by digitising materials for you whilst digitally blackening out names and addresses).
