  • Facilities for Disabled Persons
      Access to the historic first-floor library is via a flight of eighteen stairs, and regrettably no lift can be installed.Wheelchair users and others unable to manage the stairs have full access to the collections by the use of ground floor study rooms; the shelves are not browsable by any reader, so those working from the ground floor enjoy equal access to the collections with those able to ascend.Please contact us in advance with details of your requirements.
