Records, Archives and Cornish Studies

Cornwall's Archives and Cornish Studies Service is comprised of Cornwall Record Office and the Cornish Studies Library. Its basic function is to celebrate and promote the written and printed heritage of Cornwall, and ensure that it is preserved and made available so that individuals and communities, now and in the future, have access to these fantastic collections.

For our opening hours please see Visit the Cornish Studies Library or Visit Cornwall Record Office


The Archives and Cornish Studies Service reports to the Historic Cornwall Advisory Group (HCAG). To view the minutes and agendas of the HCAG meetings please see the HCAG pages.

We are very pleased to announce that we have been successful in our stage one application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a new purpose built centre in Redruth.  This unlocks over £300,000 for us to carry out development work on the project and the site.  Successful completion of this work will then release the remainder of our £9.8m grant.  For further information follow this link: A new home for the stories of Cornwall - Kresen Kernow .
