It was founded in 2009 as an addition to an existing View from… series covering much of East Devon and acquired by the Tindle Newspapers group in that year. They renamed the series Pulman’s View from… and thereafter published it as companions to Pulman’s Weekly News, their paid-for title for the East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset area. (In July 2012 Pulman’s Weekly News was incorporated into Pulman’s View from Axminster.)
It’s published by Devon, Dorset and Somerset Series of Newspapers Ltd. It used to share editorial offices in Axminster with the rest of the Pulman’s newspapers, but since April 2012 has been based in Lyme Regis with the View From… series for West Dorset and South Somerset.
It comes out on Tuesdays. An e-edition’s also available free on the website.
