Boston Standard

The Boston Standard is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the town of Boston and the surrounding fens of south-eastern Lincolnshire from Holbeach in the south to Coningsby in the north.

It’s one of several newspapers that have been part of an umbrella title, the Lincolnshire Standard. It was founded in 1912 as the Boston and Lincolnshire Standard but changed its name to the Lincolnshire Standard three years later. In 1958 it became the Lincolnshire Standard and Boston Guardian, then in 1962 it settled on more or less its present title as the Lincolnshire Standard – Boston edition.

It’s published by East Midlands Newspapers, which is part of nationwide regional newspaper publishers Johnston Press‘s Midlands division. The editorial offices are in Boston.

It comes out on Wednesdays.
