BERROW'S Worcester Journal has long been recognised as the oldest surviving newspaper in the world and in 2015 is celebrating a notable anniversary.

To mark the 325th year of continuous publication, this week's Berrow's contains a 24 page supplement covering the highs and lows of this remarkable publishing achievement.

Included free with the paper, it will feature a host of old photographs, interesting facts and amusing anecdotes amassed during the lifetime of Berrow's, right from its roots as an erratic news sheet in 1690, to its official start in 1709 when Stephen Bryan became its first proprietor, printer and editor, through to the modern publication using the latest technology at its headquarters in Berrow's House, alongside the River Severn in Worcester.
