Regional Records & Archive Offices

North Yorkshire County Council Record Office


01609 777585

On the reorganisation of local government in 1974, Harrogate was moved from the former West Riding into North Yorkshire. Accordingly, the county record office has many records relating to the town, including of its local government but also of such as schools, churches and chapels. As a record office it is necessary to make an appointment to view items; phone and email contacts above. There is a link from the website to the online catalogue. You can also find the office on twitter @nyccarchives and Instagram @north_yorkshire_archive. From lockdown, the office established a new blog site with a growing number of posts about the collections which can be found at
