Access to archive collections in off-site storage

Please note that the following archival collections are now stored off-site:

MS 944 Records of Severn Trent Water Company

WMCC Records of West Midlands County Council

MS 2680 Records of Webster & Horsfall Ltd., spring steel wire manufacturers

These collections will not be available for public consultation until the opening of the Library of Birmingham in 2013. This relocation has been necessary to allow sufficient space for packaging and conservation work to be carried out on our extensive archive collections. This work will enable our collections to be successfully moved, without risk of loss or damage, to the new library.

We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause. If you wish to make an enquiry about these collections, please e-mail us at: archives.heritage@birmingham.gov.uk, or write to us at: Birmingham Archives and Heritage, Birmingham Central Library, Chamberlain Square, Birmingham, B3 3HQ.
