Buckinghamshire Archives is home to the memory of Buckinghamshire. We collect, care for and present the written and photographic history of the county.

If you're interested in local history, there are opportunities to work with us as an archive volunteer.

Becoming an archive volunteer

Over time, we're working to catalogue our collections so that they are more accessible to historians and anyone who wants to research Buckinghamshire's past. Our archive volunteers play a vital part in this important work.

  • have good attention to detail
  • be able to work with us for at least 3 hours a week at our archive in central Aylesbury

What you will gain

In your role as an archive volunteer, you will gain experience of handling and listing historical documents. You will also help to uncover stories relating to Buckinghamshire's fascinating past.
