Have you ever wondered what lies behind the locked doors in the Searchroom at Warrington’s archives? Have you ever requested a document and heard the receding footsteps, clanking locks and creaking doors? Or are you just curious what an archive is and how it is looked after? If so, why not attend our Behind the Scenes Tour of Warrington’s Archives. You will get to see some of our strong rooms and store-rooms and to see some of the items we look after. You will see how we retrieve requested items and how we make sure they go back in the right place. Please be aware that there will be three or four steps to climb on the tour, but staff will be present to help you if necessary. The tours are from 10:30am to 12:00pm and 1:30pm to 3:00pm. Book online or by telephone through Pyramid & Parr Hall Box Office: 01925 442345, or ask at the Searchroom Helpdesk. Places are limited to 10 people per tour, so we advise you to book early.
