A landmark project will make historic Kent newspapers dating back more than 150 years available online, The KM Group can reveal.

The digital archive - made possible by a Heritage Lottery Fund - is set to open a hidden jewel of Kentish history.

Led by the HR Pratt Boorman Family Foundation, the project has secured a grant of £49,700 to digitise KM newspapers from 1859-1919. The 26,000 pages will be free to view on a fully searchable website.
