No more than 13 of the papers in the Berrow's group have been established for more than 100 years. The oldest of course, is the founder member, Berrow's Journal, which traces its ancestry back to 1690, and is the oldest continuously published newspaper in the world. The Hereford Times started up in 1832 in opposition to the Hereford Journal, which had already been going for 119 years. In 1933 the Times took over the Journal. The Malvern Gazette celebrated its centenary in 1955. The Redditch Indicator was launched by printer, scholar and geologist W.T. Heming in 1859. Two local brothers started the Evening Journal in 1860, and the Bromsgrove Messenger was also founded in 1860 by Alfred Palmer.
