Mid Wales Journal

The Mid Wales Journal is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in northern Mid Wales, covering an area including the towns of Llandrindod Wells, Rhayader, Kington, Knighton, Presteigne, Montgomery, Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn, and the villages around northern Powys.

It was founded in 1854. It’s published by Shropshire Newspapers Ltd, a division of the Wolverhampton-based Midland News Association. It forms a two-title series with the South Shropshire Journal – and was formerly part of a three-title series until the closure of the Ludlow Journal in July 2010.

The editorial offices were formerly in Ludlow, but have now moved to Telford. But there’s also an office in Llandrindod Wells, for which details are given below.

Although it has its own URL, it has no website of its own; it shares the South Shropshire Journal‘s. However, the main online news updates are now to be found through the Journal‘s Twitter feed.

It comes out on Fridays.
