About our service
Volunteers | User Group | Service Charter | Collection Policy | Preservation Policy | Public Task Statement
The Cheshire Archives & Local Studies service identifies, collects and cares for archives and publications that are the evidence of Cheshire communities’ lives past and present. We deliver access for all to our collections for information, learning and enjoyment and work to make sure archives survive so that future generations will be able to do the same.
We are a shared service of Cheshire West and Chester and Cheshire East Councils.
The service is also responsible for delivering the archives service for Warrington and Halton boroughs.
Cheshire's archives: a story shared
This project - to relocate the Archives & Local Studies service, create two new centres in Chester and Crewe and engage more and a wider range of people - is still being developed, working towards an external funding bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund in summer 2018. Frequently asked questions and answers regarding this project can be viewed at this link.
This website is run in partnership between Cheshire West and Chester and Cheshire East Councils.
