Stroud Times understands that the Stroud News and Journal building has been sold.
Hunters Estate Agents have listed the office on Lansdown Road as sold subject to contract with an asking price of £425,000.
An unnamed sources told Stroud Times that they believe the building could be converted into music studios.
The building 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 is also home to reporters covering the Wilts and Glos Standard and Gloucestershire Gazette, those offices having also been sold. The reception area has been closed to the public since 2020.
