Preston Chronicle

Newsplan NW cites 7 Sep 1822 (supplement only); 5 Sep 1812-1893. Established February 10, 1844. "Circulates through Preston, Chorley, Blackburn, Wigan, Accrington, Burnley, Colne, Clitheroe, Padiham, Garstang, Fleetwood, Poulton, Reikham, &c. Advocates no religious party whatever; opposes connexion of church with State, and all State endowments of religion. It is also a free trade and complete suffrage journal, and circulates among a dense manufacturing population, as well as over a wide expanse of agricultural districts. All restrictions in trade are looked upon as disastrous alike to commerce, agriculture, and manufactures, and upon free trade as equally advantageous" (Mitchell, 1846). A first edition is published at 6am Saturday morning, with the latest news by the London Mail. A second edition is published at 1pm with a correct report of the state of Preston market, at half past twelve (no 957, 01 Jan 1831, p.4.; no 1427, 21 Dec 1839).
