Queen Victoria was on the throne when enterprising Lincolnshire publisher W K Morton brought mechanical typesetting to the market town of Horncastle.
Mortons of Horncastle Ltd. now has a reputation which extends far beyond the county boundaries. Publication of local newspapers within Lincolnshire provided the basis for a core of expertise which has enabled Mortons to develop as a contract printer for many newspaper and periodical publishers throughout Britain.
In 2004 Mortons Media Group Ltd was formed after combining Mortons Motorcycle Media Ltd, and its heritage division, Mortons Media.
Now, as one company, Mortons Media Group Ltd produces a wide portfolio of magazine titles, specialist publications, several major classic bike shows, and offers Europe's largest Motorcycle Archive.
