It also holds information about many families, businesses, local authorities, solicitors, societies and schools, which help form a fascinating record of life in Lincolnshire.

Ron Frayne, collections manager at the Archives explains: “Over lockdown we’ve had many enquires about families in the county, so we are looking forward to welcoming people back in to help them find out more about their past.

“We will, of course, have additional hygiene and safety measures in place, including enhanced cleaning and social distancing measures.”
