Would you believe the Guardian has been delivering your news for 140 years?

To celebrate our milestone anniversary, this week’s edition includes a bumper flashback supplement packed with pictures and features from the paper’s past.

We look back to when the Guardian was born in 1871, and talk about how news was covered both locally and nationally.

There’s also a snapshot of headlines from history, as well as photos and profiles of the editors through the ages.

Don’t forget to look at how we’ve supported our troops, Botany Bay, Chorley Football Club and Chorley Little Theatre over the years too.

A double-page spread shows the famous faces hailing from Chorley, including a survivor of the Titanic, comedians, singers and actors.

And we give an insight into how the paper is produced today.

So pick up a souvenir copy of the Guardian and enjoy the 24-page supplement, as well as up-to-date news and sport stories from the last week.
