About Us

The archives in our care tell the history of Gwent, and the stories of its people. 

We collect the records of our local authorities, of businesses, families, organisations and individuals, and the collections include papers, plans, photographs, diaries and minutes.  They are catalogued, lists of the collections can be accessed through the link to Our Collections page, and we preserve and conserve them in the best possible conditions so they be used by future generations.

The collections can be accessed on site at Gwent Archives or through our enquiries and digitisation services, and we welcome group visits by local organisations, students and teachers.
