Newspapers

We have been researching the Chepstow Weekly Advertiser (CWA) for articles relating to Tidenham Parish. We have created a database of these entries. The CWA  was established in June 1855.

We record the date, Column, Event date, Place names and venues, People who are mentioned and then any additional notes. If no entries appear for a newspaper date then it is recorded as ‘nil’.
