City of Doncaster Archives are Now Open

Extract taken from Heritage Doncaster.

City of Doncaster Archives and Local Studies services are now located on Chequer Road near Waterdale. Work has taken place over several years to transform the site into a bespoke collections storage and research facility.

Please note, access to the site is not permitted without prior booking. If you do not have internet access, you can speak to one of the team by phone on 01302 734307 or book online.

Archival collections feature historical documents dating as far back as the 1100s, books, photographs, newspapers, maps, census information, and many more resources. The resources and collections shed light on centuries of local history and cover topics including business, law, healthcare, education and politics.  We also provide advice and support to local and family history researchers.
