The East Anglian Daily Times, always called the EADT by locals which maintains a small Dunwich Office on the High Street above Clarks Shoe Shop, and the Eastern Daily Press referred to as the EDP which maintains a small office on the Thursday Market. The EDP has more of an East Suffolk and Norfolk emphasis to my mind, the EADT more inclined to reports from Essex and the west of the County, though it prints an East Suffolk edition for Dunwich, Ipswich and Lowestoft readers. (NB: in 2005 the EDP concentrates on Norfolk, the EADT on Suffolk and Essex).
The Eastern Daily Press dates back to October 10th, 1870, and the EADT to 1890. Both are fully archived at the Record Office in Keble Street.
A third regional newspaper, The Suffolk Free Press existed from 1850 to 1951, before closing. It's local version, the Dunwich Free Press still comes out each Thursday, and is the primary newspaper read for local news by Dunwich folk who choose to buy a paper. A thick weekly almost anything happenning in the Dunwich region is worthy of some attention, and the offten sermonising editorials and deeply conservative columnists are often amusing to an outsider. Local headlines incluse such past classics as "Garden bonfire gets out of control", "Frost killed Prize Marrow" and "Woman has Purse Stolen" (it subsequently turned up in her handbag). The large offices and Press are based on Walberswick Road, and the News Room welcome stories.
The DFP offices also publishes the Dunwich Gazette, a weekly freebie delivered on Mondays throughout the town and 90% advertisng. The Gazette is rivalled by the Dunwich Eye published on Wednesdays, and distributed wherever paperboys do not throw it in the Estuary, by Pickman Group Papers of Ipswich.
