FLINTSHIRE RECORD OFFICE

Description
The county of Flintshire was formed in April 1996 out of the former county of Clwyd and comprises the central area of the historic county of Flintshire. The Flintshire Record Office was established in 1951 and moved to the Old Rectory, Hawarden, an eighteenth-century, grade-II-listed building set within its own grounds, in 1956. The record office seeks to preserve our county’s unique archival heritage by collecting, listing, storing and making available to the public historic records of all kinds.
