It’s part of a series of two freesheets covering eastern Berkshire and southern Buckinghamshire – the other in the series is the Slough & South Bucks Express. It’s also a companion to the paid-for weekly the Windsor Advertiser, which is a local edition of the Maidenhead Advertiser. All are published by Baylis Media Ltd and owned by a charitable trust set up by proprietor Louis Baylis in 1962.
It was founded in 1812 as The Windsor & Eton Express and kept that name until 1908, since when its coverage area and title have fluctuated, at various times expanding or contracting to cover Ascot and even Slough.
The Windsor Express used to share an office with the Slough & South Bucks Express in Slough, but now operates from the Baylis Media head offices in Maidenhead.
Although it’s primarily a freesheet, a small proportion of the print run (a little over 10 per cent) is sold through the news trade.
It comes out on Thursdays. An e-edition’s also available free on the website.
