The Barry Dock News was a weekly newspaper that was written in English and circulated within Barry, Penarth and the wider Vale of Glamorgan. The newspaper began its life in 1889 and carried on until The Barry & District News was formed in 1925. The Barry Dock News reported on local and general news.

We have looked at many of these issues whilst researching Deja Vu and have loved looking at all of the old adverts, news items and who was in the courts that week!
