High Peak Courier (defunct)

The High Peak Courier was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the town of Buxton in Derbyshire and the nearby towns to the south of the High Peak, including Chapel-en-le-Frith, Whaley Bridge and New Mills.

It was launched in 1982 as the Glossop and District Courier but changed title to the High Peak Courier in January 1983. It 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 Glossop Courier covered the area to the north 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 in 2009 by the Peak Courier.
