Northwich, Winsford & Middlewich Guardian

The Northwich, Winsford & Middlewich Guardian (referred to in brief as the Northwich Guardian) is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the Cheshire towns of Northwich, Winsford and Middlewich and in surrounding parts of the Cheshire West & Chester unitary authority, including the towns of Barnton, Weaverham and Cuddington nearby and Frodsham and Helsby further to the west, near the Mersey.

It was founded in 1860. It’s published by Newsquest (North West) from editorial offices in Northwich.

Until the end of June 2013 there were four separate titles in a group of Guardian weekly tabloid newspapers for Cheshire, of which the Northwich Guardian was the lead title; the others were:

The latter two had already merged in print in 2009, but retained separate websites and e-editions; those websites (and indeed the social media presences) remained active following the merger with the Northwich Guardian, although the separate e-editions ceased. The Knutsford Guardian is still in existence.

It comes out on Wednesdays. There’s also an e-edition available by paid subscription.
