We hold most bound volumes of original newspapers for the following areas; Burton on Trent (covering Swadlincote), Derby, Alfreton, Ashbourne and Uttoxeter . In the mid-19th century the abolition of advertisement and newspaper taxes and paper duties prompted a rapid growth of local newspapers in the Burton area.

Some of these were short-lived but by 1901, when the county borough came into existence, there were two dailies and three weeklies. Originally front pages were given over to advertisements and much of the news reported was national in character.
