Cheshunt & Waltham Mercury

The Cheshunt & Waltham Mercury is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in and around the towns of Cheshunt and Waltham Abbey in eastern Hertfordshire, on the outskirts of Greater London.

It was established in 1958 as part of the Hertfordshire Mercury series, which was founded in 1772. It was absorbed into the Lea Valley Mercury in 1974, but resumed separate publication in 1986.

It’s published by Herts & Essex Newspapers, part of the Iliffe News & Media group, which itself became part of the new Local World media group in January 2013. The editorial offices are in Hertford.

It comes out on Thursdays. There’s also an e-edition available by paid subscription.
