    • 29th June 2012

    Exciting news! Our new staffed opening hours are now available and can now be viewed on our website.

    The Hive will be open seven days a week from 8.30am to 10pm, during which time visitors can freely access all of our self-service resources; our extensive Local Studies and Archaeology Library and our catalogues and indexes. For users who want to access original archives, you must visit during our staffed opening hours, which are a little different to The Hive opening hours. The full details of our opening hours, those of the Historic Environment Service and The Hive are as follows:
