Devon Record Office EX2

Location: UK » South West » EX

Devon Record Office collects and preserves the historical records of Devon and makes them available to all who wish to study them. Devon County Council intends to reduce its funding by 30 percent. The cuts will affect the main county record office in Exeter, North Devon Record Office in Barnstaple, and the Modern Records Unit. At present, 22 full and part-time staff are employed at the three offices. The proposed cuts will result in the loss of seven full-time equivalent posts - up to nine people in total. If the cuts take effect there will be a reduction in the level of service offered, including significantly reduced opening hours.
