It was founded in 1993 as the Crewkerne Advertiser. In 2006 it was renamed the View from Crewkerne and incorporated into a View from… series covering much of East Devon. From 2009 the series was renamed Pulman’s View from… and 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. (Pulman’s Weekly News was absorbed into the Axminster edition of the series in July 2012.) The Pulman’s editorial offices were (and are) in Axminster.
It came out on Thursdays.
In April 2012 Tindle acquired the View from… series for West Dorset and South Somerset. Pulman’s View from Crewkerne was dropped in favour of the Crewkerne Weekender as a result.
