The first newspapers appeared in the 17th century when the Licensing Act  was repealed.
From around 1750, newspapers spread to larger towns and published national news.
From about 1780, local news – with items such as sales notices, postal information, coach times and destinations – began to appear in the papers.
Halifax has had a selection of monthly, weekly and daily newspapers continuously since 1829
