It’s published by Newsquest (North West) as part of its Mid Cheshire Guardian group, based in Northwich.
The Middlewich Guardian was founded in 1946 as a spin-off edition of the earlier Winsford & Middlewich Guardian, at the same time as the Winsford Guardian. In 1993 the two titles were merged once more; the Middlewich Guardian regained its separate identity again in 2002 before a remerger in 2009 and a subsequent merger with the Northwich Guardian in July 2013. Nevertheless, it retains a separate digital identity through its website and social media presences, although the e-edition (available by paid subscription) was discontinued after the latest merger.
It comes out on Wednesdays.
