It was founded in 1982. It’s published by Archant South West, a branch of the Archant media group’s Archant Lifestyle division, from their headquarters just outside Exeter. It’s a companion to the Sidmouth Herald paid-for weekly title.
In addition to the main edition (the “Sid Valley Midweek Herald”), two local sub-editions were published up until at least May 2011: the Axe Valley & District Midweek Herald and the Honiton & District Midweek Herald.
It comes out on Wednesdays. An e-edition is also available on the website. (Presumably the Sid Valley edition; prior to May 2011, all three were available.)
