Manchester always was, and still is, the home
to these two newspapers – The Guardian, a great national daily and the
Manchester Evening News, the biggest evening regional newspaper in Britain.
When the original Manchester Guardian was first published
in 1821, in reaction to the Peterloo
Massacre
, it aimed at being a local voice, with a distinct liberal
conscience and policies – it could not have expected to have become
one of Britain’s 4 “heavyweights” – a respected broadsheet with a long
unbroken tradition of reportage. It was more literate, more scholarly
and more influential than any other of its contemporaries. Its editor,
C.P. Scott , it is said “made
righteousness more readable” .
It was Scott who had sent John Masefield (later to become poet laureate)
to Ireland to cover the Easter Rising in Dublin, and Arthur Ramsome
to Russia to cover the Revolution of October 1917. Its desks spawned
other great journalist talents – like the late Northern Editor and broadcaster
Brian Redhead .
Even when the printing of the Guardian moved to London, and the “Manchester”
was dropped from its masthead, it still continued to be a Manchester
paper – now published in London and Manchester.
The Manchester Evening News, founded in 1868, like
the Guardian, was owned by the Scott Trust, and found its readership
throughout the wider north-west of England, as far as Merseyside in
the west, as the Lake District
in the North, Stoke in the South and the Pennines in the east. It is
still printed in Trafford Park, along with the Daily Telegraph. Its
first edition, around lunchtime, is still the first port of call for
its classified section, and it remains the best place to find accommodation
anywhere in Greater Manchester.

Manchester Newspapers
– Old & New

Manchester has been
the birthplace and home of many great national and regional newspapers.

The
Daily Mai
l was the first popular daily newspaper in Britain. In
1896, Alfred Harmsworth, later Lord Northcliffe, its owner, decided
it should be printed in the north as well as in London, and in 1898,
the Mail’s office opened in Deansgate, Manchester, with a circulation
of over 1million readers.
In 1926, The Daily
Express
followed and the Daily News & Leader came in 1928
to set up premises in Derby Street, Cheetham Hill. It changed its name
in 1930 to the News Chronicle – now sadly defunct.
The Daily
Herald
moved to Oxford Street in Manchester also in 1930.
In 1872, Ned
Hulton, who had been sacked from The Guardian for printing pirate news-sheets,
began to publish The Sporting Chronicle, the first of a huge
empire which he established in Manchester, including The Sunday Chronicle
in 1885, and The Evening Chronicle in 1897 in direct competition
to the Manchester Evening News – a battle which, though waged successfully
for over 60 years, in the long run, he failed to win.
In 1900 he
made a bid to take on the bigger daily newspapers, bringing out The
Daily Dispatch
, which eventually had a circulation of some 500,000.
Hulton’s new
premises in Withy Grove in the very heart of the city became the biggest
printing house in Europe, and continued to print right into the late
1980s. The remains of this empire, and later of Robert Maxwell’s vast
newspaper business exist still as the newly refurbished Printworks
entertainment and leisure complex in Withy Grove.
Eventually,
all newspaper printing moved out of the city centre as a result of rising
and prohibitive costs and lack of room for expansion. Many moved to
London, and those that remained have moved out to Trafford Park. Today,
the Daily Telegraph is still printed in Manchester, now in new
purpose built premises in Trafford Park. Mirror Group newspapers, including
the Daily Mirror, Sunday Mirror and Sunday Times
are printed in a new multi-million pound printing complex in Hollinwood
near Oldham.
