Lincolnshire Archives


We enrich our collections through:

  • donations
  • purchases
  • wider collecting of items of historical significance

The cost of caring for collections is high. We must collect our material carefully. This means that we are not able to accept everything offered to us.

We accept donations based upon our collections, priorities, legislation and policy.

If you would like to offer a donation, email

We will not accept any material that:

  • does not have a Lincolnshire connection
  • has not been agreed by a collections officer in advance
  • arrives via unsolicited post

If we are unable to contact you, we will dispose of it
