THE WREXHAM Archives service is set to move to a new home, the council has confirmed.

Wrexham council says it will be sharing 'further details very soon' as it adds that the services are set to move from the county buildings on Regent Street to Wrexham Library.

In the meantime, they say they are looking to improve the Archives Service by asking residents to contribute by completing a survey.

Wrexham Archives hold records relating to the history of the County Borough of Wrexham since its creation in 1996 and records relating to the area when it was part of the old counties of Denbighshire and Flintshire.


The service actively collects and preserves historical records and makes them available to the public for research purposes.

A spokesperson for Wrexham Council said: "We are happy to add records to the collections, which relate to the history of the County Borough.

"The records that we hold include maps and plans, photographs, newspapers, pamphlets and business and family collections. We also hold a large collection of local studies library books as well as providing internet access to a wide range of local and family history sources.

"We value your comments and they will be used to inform decisions on the development of the service going forward, and in applications toward funding to improve the Archive Service in the long term."
