There is a Devon Record Office service point. Printing and photocopying of Local History databases and other resources. Scanned prints from the Musem's collections, unframed, are available to order.

There is a small charge per session, and for printing and copying. Friends of the Cookworthy Museum may use the facilities free of charge (except the microfilm reader/printer).

If you are researching anything historical within the South Hams, you really should call in and have a chat as you never know what you might discover.
