It's your history....come and discover it

For more information on the history of our local area, please see www.recordinguttlesfordhistory.org.uk

Saffron Walden has an Archive Access Point (open Tuesday and Fridays, also Saturday mornings), located upstairs in the Library . This allows visitors to access historic records held in Saffron Walden, as well as copies of documents held at The Essex Record Office in Chelmsford (some 20 miles or so to the south.) 

Some of these documents are also available online, and can be accessed electronically either at the Access Point, or via Seax, the Record Office's online catalogue.


Saffron Walden Tourist Information Centre stocks a number of books and leaflets relating to local history. Please call in and browse the current selection.
