See the Booking Form (you will find the link above) for departure times and further information. The booking form should be printed, completed and returned to  Treetops (address on the form)  along with your cheque and a stamped self-addressed envelope to book seat(s), which must be pre-booked and pre-paid.  Booking forms are also available at Treetops.

Please provide a mobile phone number when booking. Please bring that phone with you, fully charged and switched on, in case we have to contact you on the day.

Cheques will not be paid into the bank until after the final booking date, which is two weeks before the trip date. Please note that it is the bookings received by this date that determine the coach size and the viability of the trip. If the trip is not viable your cheque will be returned, using the stamped addressed envelope.  Should you need to cancel our terms and conditions will apply.

Please make cheques payable to Dorset FHS

Cost covers coach transport only.

If you are planning to visit the National Archives we would recommend that you refer to their website, search their catalogue and plan your research needs BEFORE visiting.

Forms require Adobe Reader

NB Although the TNA allow access to filmed or fiched documents and use of computers without a reader’s ticket, a ticket is always required to look at original documents.  (The British Library & the London Metropolitan Archives also require readers’ tickets, should you visit there anytime).  To get a readers ticket, please have two forms of identity – one with your address and one with your signature, or you will not be able to access the Documents Reading Room at TNA (or do any research at the British Library or LMA).

Trips to other record offices: Some people have asked about trips to nearby record offices. As there would not be enough demand for a coach trip, we are happy to put people in touch with each other, if they were interested in going to Taunton, Chippenham or Exeter.
