The Wiltshire Times is a weekly newspaper published in Trowbridge, Wiltshire in South West England. The paper serves the west Wiltshire towns of Bradford on Avon, Trowbridge, Corsham, Chippenham, Warminster, Westbury and Melksham and the surrounding rural areas.

For the year 2018, the paper's average circulation was 6,179.[1] The paper covers news in all parts of Wiltshire, concentrating on events within its west Wiltshire coverage area.

The Wiltshire Times and its sister paper the Wiltshire Gazette & Herald share offices at the White Horse Business Park in North Bradley, on the outskirts of Trowbridge. In 2019 they moved from 15 Duke Street in the town centre, which had been home to a newspaper office for more than 170 years.[2]

Campaigns[edit]

The Wiltshire Times often has special "campaigns" that appear in the newspaper, such as a campaign to reduce the number of potholes in Wiltshire[3] and a campaign to save jobs at local factory Bowyers.[4] The factory closed for good in 2007.[5]
