About Us

WE’VE been publishing the Barnsley Chronicle every week since 1858.

It is the largest-circulating weekly newspaper in Yorkshire and remains one of the biggest-selling in the UK – and we are also proud to be one of the last remaining broadsheet publications.

Every member of our sales and editorial team is Barnsley-born and bred so no-one really ‘gets’ the area quite like we do.

Our reporters are always interested in hearing and reporting on your stories so feel free to get in touch. And if you want help promoting your business either in-print or online, then our friendly sales team will be only too happy to help.

As well as the Barnsley Chronicle newspaper and its website - www.barnsleychronicle.com - we also operate the community-led news site www.wearebarnsley.com, with our teams producing editorial and commercial contents across both titles.

The two titles combined offer the best possible avenue of reaching the broadest audience across the borough, with the newspaper being particularly strong at reaching the 40+ audience while extensive analysis of our online users confirms the websites are highly effective at reaching audiences of all ages.
