Stourbridge Chronicle

The Stourbridge Chronicle is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed to homes in the town of Stourbridge to the south-west of Dudley, and to the south and west of the town, as far out as Enville in Staffordshire and Belbroughton in Worcestershire.

It was established in 1983 as the Stourbridge & Halesowen Trader but changed title twice the following year, first to the Stourbridge & Halesowen Trader & Chronicle and then to the Stourbridge & Halesowen Chronicle. It became the Stourbridge Chronicle when Halesowen got its own separate edition in 1986. Since then it’s alternated between being the Stourbridge edition of a hypothetical overall title called The Chronicle, and simply the Stourbridge Chronicle – at present, it has the latter name in its masthead.

It’s published by Wolverhampton-based Express & Star Ltd, a division of the Midland News Association. The editorial offices are in Wolverhampton, but there’s also an office in Stourbridge.

It’s one of a series of Chronicle weekly freesheets that accompany the Express & Star. It doesn’t have a website of its own; the link below is to the Stourbridge news pages of the Express & Star‘s website.

It comes out on Fridays. An e-edition’s also available free on the website.
