The archive is usually open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays but as staffing is entirely by volunteers, dates are sometimes affected by holidays or other commitments.

We recommend that in the first place, intending visitors write to the Trust at De Salis Drive, Hampton Lovett, Droitwich, WR9 0QE (with s.a.e. please) or e-mail detailing as fully as possible what they seek.   We will respond as quickly as our resources permit and advise whether we are likely to be able to help and if so giving brief details.

If your visit will be for research purposes, a prior appointment is essential to ensure that both seating in the search room and appropriate staffing will be available.  You may make your appointment by e-mail (or telephone 01905 776681).

There is no scale of charges for access to the archive but as the Trustís running costs (rates, electricity, insurance and service charges &c) are substantial and have to be met entirely through voluntary support, researchers are usually glad to provide a donation by way of recognition.
