Lambeth Post (defunct)

The Lambeth Post was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed to households in the South London suburbs of Streatham, Clapham and West Norwood in the London Borough of Lambeth.

It was owned by the Trinity Mirror group (as two newspapers – the Streatham, Clapham & West Norwood Post and a sub-edition, the Crystal Palace Post) up until August 2007, when they agreed to sell 27 titles in the South East of England to Tindle Newspapers.

It went through a couple of name changes after that. First, the sub-edition was absorbed into the main newspaper and West Norwood dropped in favour of Crystal Palace, at least for the e-edition. Then, in March 2011, it was relaunched under the title above and its distribution area expanded northwards to cover the entire Borough of Lambeth.

It had no website of its own; the link below is to Tindle Newspapers’ main paid-for title for the area, the twice-weekly South London Press, whose editorial offices in Streatham the Post also shared.

It came out on Thursdays, with an e-edition also available via the website.

It ceased publication in July 2013 to enable South London Press to concentrate on developing its paid-for, hyperlocal portfolio.
