The service identifies, collects and cares for archives and publications that are the evidence of Cheshire communities’ lives past and present.  A shared service of Cheshire West and Chester and Cheshire East Council the service makes collections accessible to local people for information, learning,enjoyment, work and to make sure archives survive so that future generations will be able to do the same.

The service is also responsible for delivering the archives service for Warrington and Halton boroughs.
