Thank you for the suggestion. We have investigated this title and have some good news for you – Halstead Gazette fits with our criteria and The British Library have sufficient holdings! We have now added it to our lengthy digitisation plan for the years 1857-1871. We have had to limit to 1871 due to current copyright restrictions with the rightsholder.
We aim to get the best geographical coverage of the UK and will of course continue to add titles from all regions of the UK – including smaller locales.
Please keep an eye on our newsletters and social media pages for updates on titles which are newly added to the British Newspaper Archive – i.e. truly hot off the digital press!
