The Cumberland & Westmorland Herald (formerly known as The Penrith Herald, The Appleby and Kirkby Stephen Herald, and The Mid Cumberland and North Westmorland Herald over the years) is a local newspaper in Cumbria, England.

Established in 1860, the Herald is an independent weekly broadsheet newspaper covering a large area of East Cumbria, including the towns of Penrith, Appleby-in-Westmorland, Kirkby Stephen, Keswick and Alston mainly corresponding to Eden district and part of Allerdale borough.

The newspaper is published weekly on a Saturday, though some shops in Penrith sell it on a Friday evening, with a circulation of approximately 15,910 copies. The Herald is printed at the CN Group's works at Carlisle, but is published in Penrith by a company that is only part owned by the CN Group.

In April 2013, the paper won "Weekly Newspaper Of the Year", at the National Newspaper Awards, and was congratulated by local MP Tim Farron and David Simpson MP at the House of Commons. [1]
