It was launched in 1986 as part of the Derby Express series of freesheets published by the Derby Telegraph Media Group, part of the Daily Mail & General Trust‘s regional newspaper division, Northcliffe Media. The series’s editorial offices were in Derby and were shared with Northcliffe’s daily paid-for title for the area, the Derby Telegraph.
It had no website of its own; the link below is to Northcliffe’s thisisderbyshire.co.uk website, formerly the Telegraph‘s website but now a local portal site.
It came out on Thursdays.
It ceased publication in March 2012 when the Express series was relaunched as a single title, the Telegraph Lite.
