Walsall Chronicle

The Walsall Chronicle is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed to homes in and around the town and Metropolitan Borough of Walsall in the West Midlands, including the smaller towns of Willenhall, Brownhills, Aldridge, Bloxwich, Pelsall, Essington and New Invention.

It was founded in 1984 as the Walsall Trader & Star, as one of a series of freesheet companions to the Express & Star published by Express & Star Ltd (a subsidiary of the Midland News Association group). In 1986 it became simply the Walsall Chronicle and has retained that title ever since, apart from a spell from 1988 to 1996 when the whole series was published as local editions of a single The Chronicle title.

It has no website or editorial offices of its own; the link below is to the Walsall page on the Express & Star‘s website, and the address is also that of the Express & Star.

There are two local editions: one for Walsall itself, and one for Willenhall.

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