The Historical Metallurgy Society holds two main groups of archive records.

The first relates to its own activities as well as other historical documents. It also contains the papers of Charles Blick who served as HMS Conservation Officer from 1970-1991. The Society received a grant from the Awards for All England Joint Pot programme to catalogue these papers. A catalogue of the papers deposited up to 2005 can be downloaded here.

The second group is the Tylecote papers which comprise a substantial body of notes, photographs and other written material amassed by Ronnie Tylecote and donated to the Society. The papers have recently been catalogued and a list of the papers is available to download here.

These archives are stored in the library of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust (IGMT) and can be consulted by prior arrangement with the Librarian.
