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

Berwick Advertiser

The Berwick Advertiser is a weekly broadsheet newspaper sold in England’s most northerly town, Berwick-upon-Tweed, as well as surrounding parts of northern Northumberland and the eastern Scottish Borders, taking in the Berwickshire towns of Eyemouth, Duns and Coldstream and the Northumberland town of Wooler.

It was founded in 1808 as the British Gazette, & Berwick Advertiser, a name no doubt chosen to reflect its cross-border circulation area. It became the Berwick Advertiser in 1823 and has kept that name ever since, apart from a 19-month stint from February 1983 to September 1984 when it was the Berwickshire & Berwick Advertiser, after absorbing The Berwickshire News & The East Lothian Advertiser.

It’s published by the Tweeddale Press Ltd, a company within the Johnston Press group of regional newspapers. The editorial offices are in Berwick.

A companion tabloid freesheet, the Berwick Gazette, has now ceased publication. It shared the same office and website.

The Advertiser comes out on Thursdays.
