CLOSURE OF THE NORTH WEST SOUND ARCHIVE

It was with great regret that the North West Sound Archive Council made the difficult decision to wind up the organisation in 2015.

In doing so, the Council recognised the importance of ensuring, wherever possible, that recordings held at the Archive are preserved for future generations. Most collections have been transferred to appropriate local authority archive service where they will be preserved in controlled climatic conditions and will, in due course, be made available for people to listen to. There will however be no public access to original recordings.

The recordings have been transferred to other archive services as follows:

 

Recordings relating to the Greater Manchester area to Manchester Central Library. Where there are exisiting copies on CD and cassette of recordings relating to Greater Manchester these may be accessed in the searchroom at Manchester Central Library from 1 July 2015. Where copies do not already exist advance notice is required and there will be a charge for creating the access copy. 

For further information see: http://www.archivesplus.org/news/greater-manchester-sound-archive/

Recordings relating to Merseyside to Liverpool Central Library

For further information see: Archives & family history - Liverpool City Council

 

Recordings relating to Lancashire, Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool to Lancashire Archives in Preston.

Where there are existing copies of recordings relating to Lancashire these may be accessed in the public searchroom at Lancashire Archives from 1 July 2015. Where copies do not already exist advance notice is required and there will be a charge for creating the access copy.
