Clackmannanshire Archives & Local History Service is not yet open for public visits or viewing of records due to the pandemic. If you have an archive enquiry please email and the archivist will reply to you.

Please refer to our Latest Information web pages for all service updates during Coronavirus.

Clackmannanshire Archives cares for and provides access to the historical records relating to the county. Many of these records were previously held by the Central Region Archives Department at Stirling.

Our archive contains the records of the former County of Clackmannan, Clackmannan District, the old Alloa, Alva, Dollar and Tillicoultry burghs and the Alloa and Hillfoots district councils.

Within these holdings there are major runs of material such as local authority minutes, letter books, school log books and Valuation and Assessment Rolls.

As well as local government records, the repository also contains a number of private deposits of material from local organisations, families, individuals and businesses. There is a substantial body of material from the former Patons & Baldwins textile operation and the Johnstone of Alva estate papers is another major collection.

The archive collections have been moved into the Speirs Centre in Alloa, providing quicker and easier access to Clackmannanshire’s historical records.

The archive enquiry service also provides access to the Local History & Local Studies collections:

  • Books
  • Pamphlets
  • Maps
  • Photographs and slides
  • Local newspapers
  • 1841-1901 Census Enumerators' books on microfilm

Clackmannanshire Archives & Local History Service is open Monday to Friday from 9:30am to 12:30pm and 1:30pm to 4:30pm. It is advisable to contact us in advance to ensure the availability of the Archivist and to have items ready for you to view.
