Chorley Guardian

The Chorley Guardian is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in and around the market town and Borough of Chorley in southern central Lancashire, including the nearby smaller towns of Adlington, Coppull, Eccleston and Euxton.

It was founded in 1871 as The Chorley Guardian and Leyland Hundred Advertiser; it dropped the word Hundred from the title in 1935 and became simply the Chorley Guardian in 1966, seven years after the launch of its sister title the Leyland Guardian.

It’s published by Chorley Guardian Co. Ltd, a branch of Lancashire Evening Post Ltd, which itself is part of Johnston Press‘s North West division. The editorial offices are in Chorley and are shared with the Leyland Guardian.

It comes out on Wednesdays.
