Your Berkhamsted Magazine

Your Berkhamsted was the magazine for the town and parish of Berkhamsted, covering local stories, including events, local businesses, sports, church news and more. In 2023, it ceased publication after nearly 150 years.

A Berkhamsted parish magazine launched in 1874, entitled The Dawn of the Day. It was renamed The St Peter’s Parochial Review and was later published under the title of The Berkhamsted Review. Notable Berkhamsted figures wrote for the magazine, including heritage champion and mayor, John Cook, and celebrated local historian Percy Birtchnell (who wrote under the pen-name Beorcham, an ancient Anglo-Saxon name for the town).

In 2010, the magazine was relaunched under the title of Your Berkhamsted. In 2018, due to limited resources, YB switched to online-only, bi-monthly publication, with six issues a year.

In 2023, faced with a dwindling editorial team, the decision was taken to close the magazine. An archive of previous issues from 1995 to 2023 is provided on this page for historical interest.
