Cumbria Archive Service
Cumbria Archive Service preserves the documentary heritage of Cumbria over the last 900 years covering all aspects of community life including sport. It has centres in Barrow, Carlisle, Kendal and Whitehaven, all responsible for particular geographical areas within the county. Further details on locations, opening hours and other services can be found at this link.
Our holdings include local sports such as Hound Trailing and Cumberland and Westmorland Wrestling, along with other mainstream sports. Details of our collections (which are continually updated as records are received and catalogued) can be found in our online catalogue.
