All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

Glossop Courier (defunct)

The Glossop Courier was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the northernmost end of Derbyshire and the Peak District, taking in the towns of Glossop and Hollingworth to the east of Manchester.

It was founded in 1982 and was published by the Chesterfield-based Derbyshire Times Group (Wilfred Edmunds Ltd), a branch of the Johnston Press nationwide group of regional and local newspaper publishers. The editorial offices were collocated with the Buxton Advertiser’s in Buxton.

It was one of a two-title series of Courier newspapers; the High Peak Courier covered the area to the south of the High Peak.

It had no website of its own; the link below is to the Advertiser’s website.

It came out on Fridays.

It was replaced by the Peak Courier in 2009.
