Just saw this while browsing on the LRO site:

Closure
Unfortunately, due to essential maintenance work, Lancashire Record Office is now closed to the public until October. We will continue as far as possible to answer postal and emailed enquiries and to supply copies of documents, but there may be unavoidable delays

During the coming months staff are going to be very busy dealing with your enquiries and improving access to our collections and the conditions they are kept in. We are already planning the re-launch of an improved service
.

Not sure if this has been reported previously, if so then you did not hear it here first.  

Bob

Oh well, it's an ill wind that blows nobody any good  Now that we're retired, we were planning to get to England in September ( so that I could attend the Open Day among other things,and put faces to the kind and helpful North Meols voices) but we've now had to delay the trip for a few months. Imagine coming all that way to find the Records Office shut. I would have been very, very cross!.

I had an update via email today about the Lancashire Record Office -

Lancashire Archives is holding a Preview Day to celebrate the end of a Summer of engineering work and the reopening of a much improved Searchroom on Friday 21 October, 10am-2pm. The day will offer users old and new the chance to see what has been changed and why, view our treasures and explore behind the scenes. All are welcome! Please see our website for further information www.archives.lancashire.gov.uk.
We will then reopen to the public as usual on 24 October with the following open hours:
Monday – 9am – 5pm
Tuesday – 9am – 8.30pm
Wednesday – 9am – 5pm
Thursday – 9am – 5pm
Friday – 9am – 5pm
Second Saturday of every month - 10am – 4pm
For those of you who have helpfully been advising visitors of our closure over the summer, please do let people know that we will be open for the Preview Event only on 21 October 2011. We will be open for research as normal from Monday 24 October 2011.



By the way fran - have you been over or are you planning to?
