The Low Down
to Hull and Back News

(did you get the pun?)

A feisty little English weekly!


Art and Kitty Mantell started the paper in 1973 on their kitchen table for no better reason than that they loved newspapers. Their daughter, Nikki Mantell, is now at the helm.


 Our staff is the most dedicated team of newsies you'll ever find.

The Low Down is published 48 times per year on Wednesdays.
