2300 copies of the Browser are printed each month and distributed door to door throughout Bourton-on-the-Water and Clapton-on-the-Hill.  Distribution of the coming month’s edition usually takes place during the last week of the preceding month.

We offer two advertising space sizes – 6cm x 9cm or 9cm x 12cm.

Adverts can be portrait or landscape, please state requirements at the time of booking.

Placement of adverts is at the discretion of the editors and although we will try to accommodate any special request when we can this is never guaranteed.

2024 Rates

See table below for details.  As you will see there are significant savings available to those who block book for 3, 6, or 12 months and for those who pay by standing order.

Small local charities and Bourton based community groups often need to book one off adverts to advertise specific events and we will offer them a 50% discount.  The definition of such groups is at the discretion of the Browser Team.

Any advert that requires “setting” e.g. hand written adverts or text sent as word.docs or in the body of an email will attract a one off type setting fee of £10 in addition to standard costs.

We print in colour and the deadline is usually midday on the 15th of each month for the advert to be placed in the following month’s edition.  Please note the deadline maybe earlier for the January and March issues, please check with me for details.

Booking advertising

To book advertising, contact Ray Dodd using our online form, or email him at team@bourtonbrowser.co.uk.

Please state the size of advert required, the month or period you would like to book for, and attach your advert as a JPEG image or PDF document. We will let you know if space is available.  Assuming it is we will reserve a space for you pending receipt of your payment.  All payments must be made in advance of the printing deadline.  Spaces are confirmed once payment is received. As advertising space is limited in the magazine, we strongly advise early booking.  We have to work on a first come first served basis to be fair.  We do keep a waiting list and can add your name to this if we don’t immediately have a space available.

Payment can be made by BACS or cheque.  Invoices will be issued as soon as the details are agreed between us.  NB payment must be received (and if a cheque, cleared) before the print deadline.
