The Bristol Record Office has decided not to continue with its newly introduced charge for taking photographs of its documents.  I was told that it was due to the unfairness of this blanket charge for people who only wanted to take one photograph and those taking many.

Whilst I considered the £5 a day charge to be on the steep side I do believe that the Record office are entitled charge something, even if it is only a £1 or two.  All money then to be put towards the conservation of its documents which is almost none existent.
