The Macclesfield Express is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in and around the town of Macclesfield in eastern Cheshire, including the neighbouring smaller towns of Prestbury and Bollington as well as Poynton to the north on the edge of Greater Manchester.
It was founded in 1811 (and had a celebratory facelift in July 2011 to mark its bicentenary).
It’s published by Greater Manchester Weekly Newspapers Ltd, a division of MEN Media, which in turn has been part of Trinity Mirror since they acquired it from the Guardian Media Group in March 2010. The newsroom moved to Manchester in May 2009 along with all MEN Media’s other newspapers’ newsrooms, and then to Chadderton on the outskirts of Oldham in September 2010. There’s still an office in Macclesfield (in the Market Place), staffed by a reporter between 1000 and 1600 from Monday to Friday.
It comes out on Wednesdays.
