The Louth Leader
is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the Lincolnshire towns of Louth, Mablethorpe and Sutton-on-Sea and more widely throughout north-eastern Lincolnshire
, as far afield as Coningsby to the south, Wragby and Caistor to the west, and the outskirts of Cleethorpes to the north.
It was founded in 1980 by
Mortons of Horncastle as a monthly newspaper, but switched to weekly publication in January 1981. From 1994 to 2003 its title was simply The Leader.
It’s now published by Peterborough-based East Midlands Newspapers, a division of Johnston Press. The editorial offices are in Louth.
There’s a local sub-edition for Mablethorpe and Sutton-on-Sea, the Mablethorpe & Sutton Leader.
It comes out on Wednesdays.
