The Crawley Observer
– in full, the Crawley and Horley Observer
; colloquially, the “Obby” – is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold around the town of Crawley in north-eastern West Sussex
, including nearby Copthorne, Crawley Down, Horley and Gatwick.
It was founded in 1881 as Simmins Weekly Advertiser and changed name twice – to the Sussex & Surrey Courier and then the Crawley & District Observer – before assuming its present name in 1983. It’s published by Sussex Newspapers, part of nationwide publishers of regional and local papers Johnston Press‘s South Division, from editorial offices in Crawley.
There’s a companion weekly freesheet, the Weekend Herald.
It comes out on Wednesdays.
