The West Somerset News-Trader
is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the West Somerset coast
, covering the towns of Minehead, Watchet, Williton, Dunster and Porlock, and Exmoor as far inland as Dulverton.
It’s published by West Somerset Free Press Ltd, a division of the Tindle Newspapers group owned by Sir Ray Tindle, who acquired the Free Press in 1980 and under whose guidance the News-Trader was launched (as the West Somerset Trader) in 1991. The editorial offices are in Williton.
It has no website of its own; the link below is to the Free Press‘s website.
It comes out on Wednesdays. An e-edition is also available online, though you have to search for it (there’s no link from the website) and new editions aren’t always added promptly to the archive.
