January was a busy month at The British Newspaper Archive – we added thousands of newspaper pages to the website and also moved our scanning equipment to Boston Spa, the new home of the British Library’s newspaper collection.

We’ve updated 40 newspaper titles, including the Cheltenham Chronicle, the Hastings and St Leonards Observer and the Stamford Mercury. A full list of recent additions is provided below.
