It was founded in 1863. In 1869 it changed title to The Knaresborough Post and Boroughbridge Herald, but reverted to the original title 99 years later.
It’s published by the Ackrill Media Group, a branch of the nationwide Johnston Press newspaper publishing group that covers much of West and North Yorkshire. The editorial offices are in Harrogate; the office in Knaresborough appears to have closed during 2012.
The Post is part of the Harrogate Advertiser group that stretches from Richmond in the north to Tadcaster in the south. It has no website of its own; the URL below redirects to the Advertiser‘s website.
It used to come out on Fridays, but switched to Thursday publication – and abandoned its former broadsheet format – as of 31 May 2012.
