End of an era: Stroud News & Journal on the move


The Stroud News & Journal is on the move.

A staple of the town since 1854, the building on Lansdown shut for the last time on Friday after the premises were sold for £425,000.

The building was previously earmarked to become a music studio, before the previous buyer pulled out. Stroud Times understands the former SNJ office will now be turned into a family home.

The editorial team of five, who also cover the Wilts and Glos Standard and Gloucestershire Gazette, have moved to shared office space at Palace Chambers, London Road, on the outskirts of the town centre.

The old newspaper office had been the home of the Stroud Journal (founded in 1854) since 1868 and became the Stroud News and Journal in 1957 when it amalgamated with the Stroud News, owned by Dursley-based Bailey Newspaper Group.

Bailey Newspaper Group was bought by Newscom in 1997, and later sold to Newsquest Media Group in 2000, owned by the American mass media holding company Gannett. Production and printing was moved from Dursley to Newport in South Wales.

The building was also home to reporters covering the Wilts and Glos Standard and Gloucestershire Gazette, those offices having also been sold. The reception area had been closed to the public since 2020.
