Gwent Archives

Welcome to Gwent Archives!

We are an Accredited Local Authority Archive Service collecting and preserving and making accessible archives relating to the former county of Gwent.  Our friendly, professional team includes Archivists, Conservators and Records Managers as well as Archive Assistants and Administrators.

The archives in our care tell the history of Gwent, and the stories of its people. 

We collect the records of our local authorities, of businesses, families, organisations and individuals, and the collections include papers, plans, photographs, diaries and minutes.  They are catalogued, lists of the collections can be found here, and we preserve and conserve them in the best possible conditions so they be used by future generations.

The collections can be accessed on site at Gwent Archives or through our enquiries and digitisation services, and we welcome group visits by local organisations, students and teachers.
