Hebden Bridge to move to Cambridgeshire?

Readers of the Hebden Bridge Times may be interested to know that its days of being printed in Yorkshire appear to be numbered. The newspaper's parent group, the Halifax Courier, is now part of the very large provincial news group Johnston, who have announced that the Courier and the weekly local papers will cease being printed in Halifax next month.

It seems that the Courier will be squeezed on to the existing Johnston group presses in Leeds. But the HBT (and Tod News and Brighouse Echo) can't be accommodated there. Latest word suggests that the HBT may end up being printed in Peterborough.
