Welcome to the National Pipe Archive (NPA)

The National Pipe Archive (NPA) is a charitable body founded in 1993 and based in the University of Liverpool with three principal aims:

  • to collect, conserve and maintain a national archive of the tobacco pipe industry and related matters for the benefit of the public, both now and for future generations
  • to encourage and facilitate research into the history of the tobacco pipe industry and related matters
  • to promote and encourage the general education of the public in the study of the tobacco pipe industry and related matters. 

NPA is housed in the Department of Archaeology at the University of Liverpool and employs a comprehensive cataloguing and indexing system that conforms to Museum Documentation Association standards.

Any bona fide student or researcher is welcome to use the NPA by prior appointment.
