Support us in preserving the history of Gwent
Gwent Archives is a not-for-profit public service. It is our privilege to be entrusted with the region’s outstanding collection of archives. You can share in this privilege by making a financial donation. If you care about the county’s rich and varied past this is your chance to help preserve it. It will be much appreciated:-
Gwent Archives opened at its site in Ebbw Vale in 2011.
Its purpose-built facilities provide:-
- An ideal environment for you to use the unique collection of documents.
- Around 10km of state of the art storage so the Collection can be preserved for future generations and we can go on collecting - we are always keen to hear from people with documents they think might be of interest.
- Lecture and group facilities so people can learn more about using the resources.
- A modern archive conservation studio where you can see the delicate work of repair and conservation carried out.
Regular opening hours: Monday to Friday 9:30 - 5:00 p.m & on the 2nd Saturday each month from 10.00am - 4.00pm.
