Archives collection guides
We collect, preserve and make available historical records, photographs and films on Barking and Dagenham and its people.
They inspire an understanding of our rich history, pride in the borough and contribute to the development of cultural identity.
An advance appointment is necessary for using archives.
When visiting for the first time, please bring proof of address as you’ll need to register.
