The new facility, known as the Cumbria Archives Centre, will open to the public in January 2011.
Alternative research services will be offered during the changeover. Anyone wishing to access records in the meantime should contact Cumbria County Council. You can start at the Council's web site at http://www.cumbria.gov.uk
