Delia's Attic Papers consist of a cardboard box full of about twenty manilla folders, each of which contains her letters, handwritten notes and scores regarding the music she produced from 1962 to 1975.

The papers were found in her attic after she died in 2001 and were given to Mark Ayres who, in 2006, gave them on permanent loan, together with the Attic Tapes to David Butler at the University of Manchester. His department was given a high-quality flatbed scanner to digitize them but this seems not to have happened.
