It was published by the Derby Telegraph Media Group (part of the Daily Mail & General Trust‘s regional newspaper publishing division, Northcliffe Media) and was a companion to their paid-for title the Derby Telegraph. The editorial offices were in Derby.
Its web presence was through Northcliffe’s thisisderbyshire.co.uk website – which used to be the Telegraph‘s website, but was revamped as a local portal site in 2011.
It came out on Thursdays. Exactly when it ceased publication is unclear; it was still extant in 2009 but had disappeared from the Derby Telegraph Media Group’s rate cards by 2011.
