It was established in 1946 when The Winsford & Middlewich Guardian, founded in 1860, split in two. The Middlewich Guardian was established at the same time. The two were reunited in 1993, separated again in 2002, and reunited again in 2009. However, both titles’ websites continue, and both maintain an independent social media presence.
It’s part of the Mid Cheshire Guardian group of newspapers published by Newsquest (North West) from editorial offices in Northwich.
It comes out on Wednesdays. An e-edition (by paid subscription) is also available via the website.
