This local newspaper covered news from the locality and North Riding - a prime agricultural area, an aspect not covered by other local papers in the archive.
I've been an active subscriber for several years and would welcome the addition of the Malton Messenger. It gives far more detail of Malton and surrounding villages than the York herald or Yorks Gazette - a major gap in this area.
would be interested in reading the Malton Messenger. Recently renewed my subscription but BNA don't appear to have made much effort adding more north Yorkshire/North East media
Copies of the Malton Messenger and Malton Gazette, Victorian/Edwardian era, sit in Malton Library. please, please, please digitise these before there is further deterioration of these. Malton was an important market and industrial town acting as a hub for many local villages. Can we hav it soon? Is there a licensing issue?
A good weekly read
