It was established in 1981 by Express & Star Newspapers (part of the Midland News Association) as the freesheet companion to the Stafford edition of the Express & Star paid evening tabloid newspaper. As such, it didn’t have a website of its own; the link below is to the Stafford news pages of the Express & Star‘s website.
Its original title was the Stafford & Stone Trader, but it underwent a rebranding in 1985. From 1988 to 1996 it was The Chronicle (Stafford) before changing to the Stafford Chronicle and then, finally, to the Stafford & Stone Chronicle once more in 2001.
It came out on Fridays.
