Disabled Access

The HER is based on the first floor of a building which is only accessible by climbing steps (there is no lift). We can, however, arrange for disabled visitors to view our records downstairs in the West Yorkshire Archive Service’s search room. Please inform our staff when making an appointment if you require the use of this facility.
