Chester Chronicle


Chester Chronicle

The Chester Chronicle is a UK local weekly newspaper for the Chester and Cheshire area, first established in the 18th century. It is one of the UK's best-selling newspapers, published every Thursday.

Structure

It has a number of different editions:

  • Chester City
  • Chester Country
  • Frodsham & Helsby
  • Flintshire

In June 2006, the Wirral edition was discontinued. The following month, the Flintshire edition was created by merging the Deeside, Mold & Buckley and Flint & Holywell editions. While the Flintshire Chronicle is considered part of the Chester Chronicle series for purposes of advertising, sales and promotions, their editorial content is entirely separate. Since June 2006, the City edition no longer carries the word 'City' on the masthead.

The newspaper was traditionally printed as a broadsheet. However, recently it has switched to a tabloid format in line with other newspapers.

The newspaper is owned by Trinity Mirror. It has a free sister publication, Midweek Chronicle.

Miscellaneous

In February 2003, the Chester Chronicle led a campaign against a website that hosted the ribald joke article Chester's guide to: The controversy, which was unwittingly discovered by a would-be visitor to the city. Many readers and politicians followed the protest and pushed the search engine Google into removing the site from its database.
