All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

Brentwood Gazette

The Brentwood Gazette is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the Essex town of Brentwood and in other nearby towns and villages in southern Mid Essex and the London Borough of Havering in north-eastern Greater London, including Billericay, Chipping Ongar, Romford and Wickford.

It was founded in 1919 as the Brentwood Gazette and Mid-Essex Recorder. It’s published by the Essex Chronicle Media Group Ltd, part of Northcliffe Media, which was formerly the Daily Mail & General Trust‘s regional newspaper division but became part of the new Local World media group at the end of 2012. It’s a companion to the Chelmsford-based Essex Chronicle, with which it shares editorial offices, its own offices in Brentwood having closed.

There are three paid-for editions:

  • Brentwood
  • Billericay & Wickford
  • Ongar & North Weald

An additional pickup freesheet edition, the Romford Gazette, was launched in April 2012.

All come out on Wednesdays.

Its web presence used to be through Northcliffe’s portal website, to which its URL redirected. However, when Local World decided in early 2013 that all former Northcliffe titles should have their own “publisher-branded” website, the URL was given a website in its own right.
