The Record Office has issued the following statement on the move to Kresen Kernow:

In order to prepare for the move, Cornwall Record Office will be closed to the public from September 2nd and the Cornish Studies Library will be closed to the public from September 9th 2018. Together they will reopen as Kresen Kernow on the former brewery site in Redruth in 2019. The closure will allow staff and volunteers to package and move our thousands of documents, photographs, books and maps. While we are packaging and preparing the collections there will only be a limited enquiries and copies service, which will depend on physical access to the collections and staff availability. For more information, follow them on social media or keep an eye on our website
