It was launched in 2010 and is published by Packet Newspapers, a Falmouth-based subsidiary of Newsquest (South West), as part of its Packet group of paid-for weekly tabloids for western and central Cornwall. It replaced their earlier title for Penwith, the picturesquely named Penwith Pirate.
The Packet series titles share a common website; the link below is to the West Cornwall news pages. The editorial offices are in Falmouth.
It absorbed a companion quarter-fold freesheet, the Helston, The Lizard & West Cornwall Gazette, at the end of 2012.
It comes out on Wednesdays.
