The Chester-le-Street Advertiser
is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed free to homes in and around the County Durham town of Chester-le-Street
, including Birtley, Sacriston, Great Lumley and surrounding villages.
It was founded in 1986. It has no connection with an earlier title, The Chester-le-Street Liberal and Houghton-le-Spring Advertiser, which was founded in 1856 and absorbed into the Durham Chronicle in 1940.
It’s published by Newsquest (Yorkshire & North East), from editorial offices in Darlington.
It’s one of three freesheets in the North Durham Advertiser series; the other two cover Consett & Stanley and Durham. The series’s editorial offices are in Darlington.
