Barnsley Chronicle is a trusted publisher, regulated by The Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) the independent regulator for the UK’s newspaper and magazine industry.
We are financial contributors to the Regulatory Funding Company (RFC) which funds the country’s press regulation system and we have senior board representation.
We are also a member of the News Media Association (NMA) – the trade body for UK national, regional and local newspapers and media outlets which represents and promotes the interests of publishers to government, regulatory authorities, industry bodies and other organisations.
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 ‘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.
