The Vale Advertiser (defunct)

The Vale Advertiser was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the Vale of Clwyd in Denbighshire in North Wales, including the town of Denbigh as well as the cathedral city of St Asaph to the north and Ruthin to the south.

It was launched in 1992 by North Wales Independent Press – despite the name, a branch of Britain’s largest newspaper group, Trinity Mirror – as a freesheet counterpart to what was then their paid-for weekly title for the area, the Denbighshire Visitor.

It was relaunched in June 2008 as Your Vale, but was dropped in October that year with the Visitor‘s switch to freesheet distribution the previous month.

It had no website of its own; its last URL now redirects to the Daily Post‘s website.

It came out on Fridays.
