It’s published by Premier Newspapers, a branch of nationwide publishers of regional and local newspapers Johnston Press. The editorial offices were in Hemel Hempstead until the end of 2013, but have since moved to Aylesbury.
It was founded in 1858 as The Hemel Hempstead Gazette and West Herts Advertiser. From 1899 to 1973 it was the Hertfordshire, Hemel Hempstead Gazette and West Herts Advertiser before adopting its existing title for the first time. In 1991 it became simply The Gazette and kept that title until 2004, when it changed back to its present title.
There’s an associated freesheet: the Herald Express.
The Gazette’s two editions are:
- Hemel Hempstead
- Berkhamstead & Tring
Both come out on Wednesdays.
