North Star & Farmers Chronicle
The North Star is a slip edition of the weekly paid-for tabloid newspaper the Highland News, covering the old county of Ross & Cromarty and including the towns of Dingwall, Tain, Alness and Invergordon.
It was founded in 1893 as the North Star and Farmers’ Chronicle and kept that name until 1969, when it was taken into the Highland News series as the Highland News & North Star and Farmers’ Chronicle, adopting the News‘s edition numbers in the process. It underwent two name changes in as many months in 1976, becoming first the Highland News & North Star and then the North Star & East Ross Star, before assuming its present title in June 1977.
I would love to see this added to the British Newspaper Archive as sources which cover the very broad area of the Highlands are greatly limited. The current entries from the Inverness Courier and Caithness Courier are useful but do not go into the detail required for Ross-shire based researchers. Please add the North Star & Farmers Chronicle
