North West Evening Mail

The North West Evening Mail (or North-West Evening Mail, according to its masthead) is an evening tabloid newspaper published from Monday to Saturday and sold in the town of Barrow-in-Furness and wider southern Cumbria, including the towns of Ulverston, Windermere, Ambleside, Dalton-in-Furness, Millom and Grange-over-Sands.

Its history goes back to 1898 and the foundation of the North Western Daily Mail. It continued to be published under that name until 1940; in 1941 it switched from morning to evening publication and was renamed accordingly.

It’s published by Furness Newspapers, part of the Carlisle-based CN Group (formerly Cumbrian Newspapers). The editorial offices are in Barrow, and there’s also a network office in Millom, though the office in Ulverston appears to have closed.

Until 2011 there were four editions:

  • Final
  • Late Final
  • Millom & West Cumbria
  • Ulverston & South Lakes

However, the Final and Late Final editions have now been merged into a single Barrow & Furness edition, and the Millom & West Cumbria edition is now the Millom & South Copeland edition.

There’s also a companion weekly freesheet, the Advertiser.

App versions for Android and iPhone are also available.
