TNA closures at Kew

If you are planning to head south to Kew to do some research, the following from Simon Fowler's Ancestors magazine blog is worth taking a note of:

Over Christmas and the New Year, The National Archives will be closed from Christmas Eve to Monday 28 December 2009 and from New Year’s Day and 2 January 2010. All dates are inclusive.

Incidentally the Archives will be closed for Stocktaking between Friday 4 December and Tuesday 8 December

From 4 January The National Archives will be open five days a week (Tuesday to Saturday). Opening hours and document ordering times have been increased and will be: Wednesday, Friday and Saturday opening hours 9am-5pm (document ordering 9am-4.15pm); Thursday 9am-7pm (document ordering 9am-5pm).

Personally speaking, I just stepped out of the front door ten minutes ago into a blustering hail storm, walking across a sea of ice to reach my local shop, which is just two minutes away, to buy some gas and electric to top up my meters. Personally speaking, I am going nowhere until the sun returns to Scotland. In other words - I am now on weather strike!
