Penwith Pirate (defunct)

The Penwith Pirate was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the Penwith peninsula in Cornwall, including the town of Penzance and the Land’s End area.

It was published by Packet Newspapers, a Falmouth-based subsidiary of Newsquest (South West), as a companion to its Packet group of paid-for weekly tabloids for western and central Cornwall.

It had no website of its own; the link below is to the Falmouth Packet‘s website.

It came out on Wednesdays.

It was replaced by the more prosaically named West Cornwall Packet in 2010.
