The archives hold records created by a wide range of organisations, families and estates, parish churches, businesses, societies and individuals dating from the 12th century to modern times. These records relate primarily to the county of Northamptonshire, however, the records of the diocese of Peterborough covering Northamptonshire, the Soke of Peterborough and Rutland, and some records relating to other counties are also held.

You can view the documents free of charge on any day that the Archives are open to the public without needing to make an appointment.
