The Cornish Times has changed from a broadsheet to a compact format this week.
The decision to change the Tindle Newspapers weekly launched in 1857 follows extensive market research which made evident readers wanted a smaller paper.
Editor John Noble said: “We are very aware that while many people will welcome the new format others enjoy the paper the way it has been. So the only thing that has changed is the size – it is still very recognisable as the Cornish Times, sticking closely to the Tindle Newspapers winning formula: local people, local places, local names, local faces.”
The change follows the paper’s move to new offices into what used to be a hotel in Liskeard town centre.
