A page contained within the West Penwith Resources site details some of the newspapers that covered Cornwall from 1801 right up to the present day. Dates of when certain papers were publishing appear, as do links to the British Library Newsplan Project, and even some short extracts. The newspapers covered are: Cornwall Gazette and Falmouth Packet, Royal Cornwall Gazette, Cornish Guardian, West Briton, Penzance Gazette, Penzance Journal, Cornish Telegraph, Mining, Agricultural and Commercial Gazette, Cornish Evening Tidings, The Cornishman, The Church in the West, St Ives Weekly Summary, Visitors' List and Advertiser, Western Echo, St Ives Times, Penzance and District News and Advertiser, Penzance Shopper, and the Penzance, Hayle and St Ives Leader.
Those already familiar with Cornwall will notice that many of the newspapers mentioned above do concentrate on the western part of the county. One of the things I have found the most difficult over the years is discovering which papers covered which area I am currently researching - so, now that I know the names, I can search further for some archives.
