The Bury Journal
is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper delivered to homes in the Metropolitan Borough of Bury in north-western Greater Manchester
(formerly Lancashire), including the smaller towns of Radcliffe, Tottington, Ramsbottom and Whitefield as well as Bury itself.
It was launched in 1993 as simply the Journal, but adopted its present name in 1996. It’s published by Newsquest (North West) as a companion to their paid-for title for the area, the Bury Times. The editorial offices are in Bolton.
It has its own web address, but no website of its own; the URL redirects to the Times‘s website.
A small proportion of the print run (less than 10 per cent) is available through pickup points at a variety of locations.
It comes out on Wednesdays. An e-edition’s also available free via the website.
