With the help of external funding, Derbyshire Record Office is always busy working on projects that will improve access to our collections, whether that is through cataloguing, conservation, or public engagement.

With funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund we are digitising historic maps of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.
With the help of an Archives Revealed grant, we are cataloguing the papers of the ill-fated polar explorer Sir John Franklin, and his family.
Derbyshire Lives through the First World War
Our Heritage Lottery Funded project supported communities across Derbyshire to commemorate the First World War and produced a website and travelling exhibition.

Funded by the Wellcome Trust, we have catalogued the archive of the National Union of Mineworkers, Derbyshire Area.
