It was a sub-edition of the Nuneaton Observer. At the time of its demise it was part of a group of freesheets the Redditch-based Observer Standard Newspapers, founded by Chris and Pat Bullivant in 1989. The editorial offices were in Nuneaton and shared with the Nuneaton News, the local paid evening tabloid owned by Staffordshire Newspapers.
In 2008 an agreement was reached with Staffordshire Newspapers whereby the Nuneaton News (at that time named the Heartland Evening News) contributed stories to the Observer.
It came out on Wednesdays.
The Nuneaton Observer and the Bedworth Observer ceased publication under those titles in January 2009 and were replaced by a free edition of the Nuneaton News.
