Lincolnshire Archives

Lincolnshire Archives offers a public search room where members of the public are welcome to consult original archives, microfilm resources and library material relating to the county of Lincolnshire and its connections in other parts of the UK and overseas.

Lincolnshire Archives was established as a county service in 1948 with the bringing together of the records collected by the Lindsey, Kesteven and Holland County Councils, and the Lincoln Diocesan Record Office, known as the Lincolnshire Archives Committee. The service is now part of Lincolnshire County Council’s Environment and Economy department.

Records held at Lincolnshire County Council’s Archives Service have been named as amongst 38 national collections designated as having outstanding national and international importance, specifically The Bishop's Rolls and Registers, dating from 1214 which form the core historical records of the diocese of Lincoln.

Another important collection is found in the Tennyson Research Centre: the most signifcant collection on Alfred Lord Tennyson in the world. Tennyson’s library and those of many family members line the room while manuscripts, proofs, letters, photographs and personal belongings are stored nearby.

Research of the Archives' other collections can be undertaken on your behalf – please contact the Archives for further details.
