Harlow Citizen (defunct)

The Harlow Citizen was one of a two-title series of weekly freesheet tabloid newspapers for the towns of Harlow in western Essex and Bishop’s Stortford in north-eastern Hertfordshire, as well as towns in the surrounding area including Sawbridgeworth.

It was originally founded in 1953. It amalgamated with the Harlow Gazette (founded in 1950) in 1973 and was renamed the Harlow Gazette and Citizen. It reverted to the Harlow Gazette title in 1980, briefly became the Harlow Citizen Gazette in 1989 and finally readopted the Harlow Citizen title the following year.

At the time of its demise in 2008 it was published by Newsquest (North & East London) from editorial offices in Epping.
