Pendle Express (defunct)

The Pendle Express was a weekly tabloid newspaper sold across the Borough of Pendle in East Lancashire, in an area taking in the towns of Nelson and Colne as well as the smaller towns of Barnoldswick and Earby.

It was founded in 1994. It was published by East Lancashire Newspapers (part of nationwide publishers of regional newspapers Johnston Press) and was a sub-edition of the Burnley Express. It was also a companion midweek title to ELN’s three Friday titles for the area, the Nelson Leader, the Colne Times and the Barnoldswick & Earby Times. The editorial offices were in Nelson and were shared with the rest of the Leader-Times series.

According to the website, it was particularly popular with fans of Burnley FC.

It came out on Tuesdays.

It ceased publication in mid-June 2011.
