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 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.
