Conwy Archives Now Open To The Public

Conwy Archives Now Open To The Public


Thursday 22nd Oct 2020


Conwy Archives moved to the Conwy Culture Centre in February but due to Covid-19 is only now able to welcome the public through its doors. 

On an appointment only basis, Monday to Wednesday, Conwy Archive staff can assist researchers with their family, house, local and other history enquiries.

Cllr Dr Mark Baker, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Heritage and Culture said, “I’m pleased to say Conwy Archives has opened its doors. We know how important the archive service is to our communities. And we’re all excited to see Conwy Archives open in its new home at the Conwy Culture Centre.”

Conwy Culture Centre is a great starting point to explore the rich story of Conwy County. For the first time it brings together the county archives, an area library, heritage collections, exhibitions, a community arts hub, meeting room, and café.

To make an appointment email archifau.archives@conwy.gov.uk or call 01492 577550.

Staff at Conwy Archives will continue to offer enquiry assistance over the phone and via email but are looking forward to assisting researchers in person in a safe manner.

 

The Culture Centre and sensory garden are funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Conwy County Borough Council, the Welsh Government (Museums, Archives, Libraries Division), the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government, Gwynt y Môr Community Fund in partnership with Conwy Arts Trust, Arts Council Wales, LDT Communities Fund, Thomas Howell Education Fund for North Wales and the Welsh Historic Garden’s Trust.
