Newspapers on microfilm

The Dorset History Centre holds local newspapers, most of which are available to view on microfilm.

Please note the newspapers are not indexed, so without a date a specific search is likely to be time consuming. The newspapers are a rich source of local interest and historical flavour in their own right.
