All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

Warrington Guardian

The Warrington Guardian is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the North Cheshire town of Warrington and the surrounding area, including the smaller towns of Lymm, Woolston and Newton-le-Willows.

It was founded in 1853. It’s now published by Newsquest (North West), part of the nationwide Newsquest Media Group, from offices in Warrington.

It’s had various local editions, including for Lymm, Culcheth, Birchwood, Stockton Heath and Newton-le-Willows. The last survivor, the Newton Guardian, ceased publication in 2007.

There’s a companion freesheet, the Warrington Midweek, which shares both the website and the editorial offices.

It comes out on Thursdays. An e-edition’s also available, by paid subscription.
