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

Camden New Journal

The Camden New Journal is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed through pickup points (street dispensers, shops, community centres) and by delivery to households in the London Borough of Camden, taking in a wide number of postcode areas including all or part of NW1 (Camden Town), NW3 (Hampstead), NW5 (Kentish Town), NW6 (Kilburn), NW11 (Golders Green), N1 (King’s Cross), N6 (Highgate), N7 (Holloway), N19 (Upper Holloway), WC1 and WC2 (Central London) and W1 (the West End).

It’s published by New Journal Enterprises and was founded in 1982 with the backing of investigative journalist Paul Foot, local MP Frank Dobson and founding editor Eric Gordon. The editorial offices are in Camden Town and are shared with sister freesheets the Islington Tribune and the West End Extra.

It has a strong reputation for the quality of its journalism and its high news content – for instance, it broke the story in 2006 that Margaret Hodge, a junior Minister in the Blair government at the time, had described the Iraq war as Blair’s big mistake in foreign policy.

It comes out on Thursdays.
