Devon Heritage Centre will close at 1.00 pm on the 24th December 2014 for the Christmas and New Year Holidays and will re-open at 10.00 am on Friday, 2nd January 2015.
On 1st November, 2014 the Devon Heritage Services came under the management of the South West Heritage Trust, which decided to rename it the Devon Archives and Local Studies Service. We are still located at the Devon Heritage Centre, Great Moor House, Sowton, Exeter, with a branch at North Devon Record Office, Barnstaple. Find out more.....
To all users of the Devon Heritage Centre in Exeter
Please note that we will be installing mobile shelving in some of our ground floor strong rooms during November and December 2014. Although we will not be closing to the public during this work, there will inevitably be some restrictions on access to certain collections held in the areas affected for several weeks. We will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum, but please be aware that you may not be able to access everything you wish to consult while this work is in progress. We apologise for any inconvenience this essential work may cause. Please revisit this website for further updates as the work progresses. More information on collections affected …… (38KB - pdf help)
