Researchers should book a ticket through this website and must then contact the Archives with a list of documents they would like to consult, citing reference numbers where possible. The Archives can be contacted via e-mail at: searchroom@culturewarrington.org

If you have a question, but are unsure what documents may answer it, please state your enquiry in the e-mail and we will do our best to suggest a suitable selection of documents.

The Archives collections can be searched online at: http://catalogue.cheshirearchives.org.uk/CalmView/advanced.aspx?src=CalmView.Catalog when searching the catalogue be sure to select Warrington from the Repository drop down box.

The Local Studies collections can be searched online at: https://libonline.livewirewarrington.co.uk/ when searching the catalogue select ‘Heritage Hub’ from the drop down box on the right hand side of the page.

Upon arriving at the Searchroom you will be allotted a workspace and your items will be waiting for you on a trolley or at your workspace. At the end of your session, please return your documents to the trolley where possible.

All surfaces will be cleaned between researchers, and after use all documents are quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours.

As it is necessary to quarantine records after use, the documents you request may not be available at the time of your visit. In this case we will let you know at the soonest opportunity, so that you can re-arrange your visit or request an alternative item.

In accordance with Government advice all visitors will be expected to wear a facemask whilst in the Searchroom, unless exempt from doing so. Masks are not provided by the Archives. Gloves do not have to be worn whilst handling the documents.
