English and Creative Writing: Historic newspapers and periodicals

Historic newspapers and periodicals

NB: The public library in the town centre has access to the British Newspaper Archive. This duplicates our own online access to 17th-19th century newspapers but also includes 20th century local newspapers (inc. Western Morning News) up to the 1950s. Find out which newspapers are included.
Articles can only be viewed on the public library computers but you can search the files 
before you go to save time.
