County Times

The County Times is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold across Mid-Wales (Powys).

It’s published by NWN Media (formerly the North Wales Newspapers group), an independent family-owned company with head offices in Mold near Wrexham. Its editorial offices are in Welshpool (Y Trallwng).

It appears in three editions:

  • The County Times & Express is the edition for Montgomeryshire and appears to have its origins in the Montgomeryshire County Times & Shrewsbury & Mid Wales Advertiser, founded in 1893. Since early 2011(?) there’s been a dedicated sub-edition for Newtown;
  • The County Times & Gazette is the edition for Radnorshire and North Brecknock; it descended from the Brecon and Radnor Express and Carmarthen Gazette, founded in 1889.

Both main editions have been appearing under their current names since 1969.

It comes out on Fridays. An e-edition is available on the website by paid subscription.
