Members of the Charles Close Society may consult maps and associated records in the Foyle Reading Room of the Royal Geographical Society (with the IBG) at 1 Kensington Gore, London SW7 2AR. This privilege is available without charge to those who are undertaking research for publication in Sheetlines, a book to be published by the CCS, or a learned society’s journal. Otherwise a daily charge of £10 is payable by members of the general public.

Readers should come to the new main entrance of the RGS at the top of Exhibition Road. Opening hours are normally from 10:00 to 17:00 Monday to Friday. They should present their CCS membership card and other evidence of identity and for preference bring a letter explaining what research is being done. It is advisable to telephone 020 7591 3000 in advance to make an appointment.
