Introduction

Shropshire Archives preserves and makes accessible documents, books, maps, photographs, plans and drawings relating to the historic county of Shropshire past and present. We usually have around 6,000 people visit us each year, but the coronavirus pandemic has meant we have only been available online over recent months.

We're keen to welcome people back, to visit us onsite and make use of more of the resources we have available.  We'll be making some changes to ensure the health and safety of visitors and staff.

To help us prepare for our reopening, we have a few questions. We'd like to understand how you'd like to use Shropshire Archives over the coming months whilst we continue to respond to the coronavirus pandemic. We want to learn of any concerns you may have so that we can put measures in place to make you feel more comfortable using our services.
