It was founded in 1887 and is part of a two-title series for central Surrey along with the Leatherhead Advertiser – indeed, from 1902 to 1960 the two were published together as the Dorking and Leatherhead Advertiser. The Dorking part then resumed its separate existence as the Dorking Advertiser and County Post until 1973, when it readopted its original title.
In July 2007 former owners Trinity Mirror sold both Advertisers along with their parent title, the Surrey Mirror to East Surrey & Sussex News and Media, part of what used to be the Daily Mail & General Trust‘s local newspapers division, Northcliffe Media; Northcliffe’s now part of Local World. The editorial offices are in Dorking.
It comes out on Thursdays.
