The Wellington Weekly News
is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the Somerset town of Wellington and its surrounding area
, within a quadrilateral the corners of which are marked roughly by Wiveliscombe to the north-west, Monckton Heathfield to the north-east, Churchingford to the south-east and Peverell to the south-west.
It was founded in 1860 as Corner’s Wellington Weekly News, an independent publication by local businessman Richard Corner, but became part of the Northcliffe empire from 1944 to 2006. It was a broadsheet for most of its existence until 2000; the exception was a switch to tabloid forced by newsprint shortages in the Second World War and reversed only in 1959.
It’s now published by the Tindle Newspapers group, who have a regional office in Taunton. Its editorial offices are in Wellington.
It comes out on Wednesdays. An e-edition is also available through the website by paid subscription.
