It was founded in 1854 as a monthly publication, the Bridgnorth Journal and General Advertiser, but switched title after just nine issues to the Bridgnorth Journal and South Shropshire Advertiser; it changed to its present title in 1973.
It’s published by Telford-based Shropshire Newspapers, a branch of the Midland News Association and the publishers of the Shropshire Star evening tabloid newspaper for the county. The editorial offices are in Bridgnorth High Street.
It comes out on Fridays. A free e-edition’s also available after a few days, although you have to use a search engine to get to it – it doesn’t appear to be linked to from anywhere on the site.
