Halesowen Chronicle

The Halesowen Chronicle is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper delivered to households in the town of Halesowen in the south-eastern corner of the Metropolitan Borough of Dudley in the West Midlands, including nearby Cradley Heath and Rowley Regis, as well as Quinton in the City of Birmingham and Romsley in Worcestershire.

It’s published by Wolverhampton-based Express & Star Ltd, a division of the Midland News Association, as part of the Chronicle series of companion freesheets to its evening title the Express & Star. The main editorial offices are in Wolverhampton, but there’s also an office in Stourbridge (details below).

It has no website of its own; the link below is to the Halesowen news pages of the Express & Star’s website.

Originally it was part of the Stourbridge & Halesowen Trader founded in 1983. The Trader series became the Chronicle series in 1984, after a very brief spell (one issue!) as the Trader & Chronicle; the Halesowen Chronicle started in its own right in 1986.

It comes out on Thursdays. An e-edition’s also available via the website.
