Bolsover Advertiser (defunct)

The Bolsover Advertiser was a freesheet tabloid newspaper for the town of Bolsover in north-eastern Derbyshire and other towns and villages in the District of Bolsover, including Glapwell, Cresswell and the superbly named Clowne.

It was published by Wilfred Edmunds (Derbyshire Times) Ltd, part of the Johnston Press group and publishers, as the name implies, of the Chesterfield-based Derbyshire Times.

It was launched in 1990 as a monthly publication called the Bolsover and District Echo. In October 1996 it switched to fortnightly publication and was renamed the Bolsover Advertiser, thus resurrecting a title that had first been used from 1977 to 1985 for another free monthly.

The Advertiser was a companion of the Times and had no editorial offices of its own, nor a separate website; the link below is to the Times‘s website.

It came out on Wednesdays.

It ceased publication in 2011.
