National newspapers

Traditionally newspapers could be split into 'broadsheet', serious-minded newspapers and 'tabloid', less serious newspapers. The Independent has switched to a tabloid-sized format, and The Times runs in both formats. These newspapers are included in the 'Broadsheet' section nontheless.

Local newspapers

Most towns and cities in the UK have at least one local newspaper, such as the Evening Post in
Bristol and The Echo in Cardiff. However they are not known nationally for their journalism in the way that (despite much syndication) city-based newspapers in the USA are (e.g. The New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe). The single major exception to this pattern was the well-regarded "Manchester Guardian", which dropped the 'Manchester' from its name (1959) and relocated to London (1976). The group continued to produce a Mancunian paper, the Manchester Evening News.

Papurau Bro

Papurau Bro (Area Papers) are
Welsh language newspapers produced nominally monthly (typically 10 issues a year with a summer break) which cover the news in a small area -- a town, group of parishes, one or a few valleys, etc., with a circulation of perhaps a few thousand each. There are between 50 and 60 Papurau Bro which cover the whole of Wales, plus the Welsh communities of Liverpool and London. Papers are frequently named after local features, connections, crafts, etc, or in dialect (clebran, clecs, clochdar, and clonc all imply gossip).
