At Herefordshire Archives & Records (1988-2003) I worked on the usual variety of material to be found in local government archives: e.g. parish, local government, solicitors, estate and private records. I also set up a business records survey and wrote regular articles for the local media. I also produced leaflets on house history, types of documents and accessioning.

In 1988 I worked as Contract Archivist at the Record Office for Leicestershire, Leicester & Rutland on a six month post listing the papers of the Noel family of Exton. I appraised and item-listed about 60 boxes in a large collection and provided data for a funding bid.

From 1986-1987 I worked as Business Archives Survey Officer and Archives Assistant at the Kent History & Library Centre. The survey involved contacting businesses and appraising, surveying and listing records, which were either deposited as a result of the survey or retained by the businesses.
