All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

Driffield Times (defunct)

The Driffield Times was a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the town of Driffield in East Yorkshire and more widely around the East Riding, although the core distribution area was the four-mile (6 km) radius around the town.

It was founded in 1860 as a broadsheet, The Driffield Times and General Advertiser, but adopted the shorter title above in 1937 and switched to tabloid format in 1988. It was published by Yorkshire Regional Newspapers, part of the Johnston Press chain of regional newspapers. The same editorial team also produced the Driffield Post from editorial offices in Driffield, which were shared with the Beverley Guardian freesheet.

It came out on Wednesdays.

In September 2011 it merged with the Post to form the Driffield Times & Post.
