Over the past week we have been to both the Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire records offices. How do they compare? Northamptonshire is bright, Oxfordshire darker inside. The toilets are nicer in Northamptonshire whereas the other ones have a strong toilet smell, similar to public toilets after a Saturday night partying!
Oxford however does do proper coffee in carafes, tea, hot chocolate in proper cups but Northamptonshire really falls behind with wishy washy everything from a dispenser.
We had far more luck in Northants but did manage to get what we needed including going further back on all sides. However, as is often the case, we raised just as many questions!
We shall be ploughing through it all this weekend, trying to get the information into its electronic and physical places. Have a good weekend everyone.
