The North-West Evening Mail, known locally as the Evening Mail, and formerly called the North-Western Daily Mail (1898-1940), is a daily, local newspaper in the United Kingdom, printed every evening. It is based in Barrow-in-Furness.

Although its title suggests a larger area, it in fact only covers news in the South Lakes and Furness. Typically, this is Barrow, Dalton, Ulverston, Grange-Over-Sands, Windermere, Millom, and some of the more notable stories from Kendal and Copeland.

It is in a tabloid style, and has three separate editions, Barrow, Ulverston and Millom though the only difference is the story on the front page. Before changes to printing arrangements it had four - Barrow Early, Barrow Late Final, Ulverston and South Lakes, and Millom: although the only difference is on the front page and page six; the remainder of the paper is the same throughout. Articles typically range between important local news items, (such as major council decisions, local business news, etc.) to more personal stories about residents of the area.

The Evening Mail is printed and published by Furness Newspapers Ltd. a subsidiary of Carlisle-based media company CN Group Ltd. The current circulation is around 9,000 copies a day within South Cumbria (a region with a total population of almost 250,000). Market penetration is at its highest in its core area of Barrow and Dalton, at almost 50 per cent of households and at its lowest in Ambleside.

James Higgins, formerly assistant editor of The Bolton News, is the latest editor of the paper, taking up the position in July 2014 and having spent the previous four years as deputy editor. He was preceded by Jonathan Lee, who joined in 2008. Lee was previously editor of the Shetland Times, but left after a vote of no confidence from colleagues.[1][2] Previous editors of the Evening Mail include Steve Brauner, Sara Hadwin, Donald Martin, Keith Sutton, and Tom Welsh.
