It was founded in 2005 as the View from Colyton, part of a View from… series covering much of East Devon. In 2009 the series was renamed Pulman’s View from… and thereafter published as companions to Pulman’s Weekly News, the Tindle Newspapers group’s paid-for title for the East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset area.
Since April 2012 it’s been published by Devon, Dorset and Somerset Series of Newspapers Ltd, a new Tindle subsidiary company set up to manage the Pulman’s newspapers and another recently acquired View from… series covering West Dorset and South Somerset. The editorial offices of the Pulman’s titles moved from Axminster to Lyme Regis.
It comes out on Tuesdays. An e-edition’s also available free on the website, which mirrors the content of the main Pulman’s Weekly News website.
