It was founded in 1983 as the Hoddesdon Mercury and adopted its present title in 1986. It’s published by Herts & Essex Newspapers, part of the Iliffe News & Media group (and thus part of the Local World group since the end of 2012), as one of the four-title Hertfordshire Mercury series of newspapers. All four share the same editorial offices in Hertford, and the same website – the link below is to the Hoddesdon & Broxbourne news pages.
It comes out on Thursdays. All four editions of the Hertfordshire Mercury are also available as e-editions by paid subscription.
