Newspaper returns to its own permanent city centre office

A weekly newspaper has reopened its own city centre office after being based at a theological college for the past year.

The Salisbury Journal is moving to a new headquarters at Milford House, pictured, where it has taken a five-year lease.

HTFP reported in January how the Journal has moved into space at Sarum College, which stands opposite Salisbury Cathedral, after publisher Newsquest sold the paper’s former Rollestone Street home.

Milford House, on Milford Street, is less than half a mile from the Journal’s most recent home.

Editor Kimberley Barber said: “We are so excited to be moving into a permanent office in Salisbury city centre.

“For the past year we have been working out of Sarum College and we have been grateful for them hosting us, but we are eager to get into our own place.

“I am especially looking forward to being able to meet readers. We are making the final tweaks and hope to be operating from there full-time by Christmas.”

Letting agent Myddelton & Major acted on behalf of the building’s landlord in the deal.

Dean Speer, from Myddelton & Major, said: “it will be great to see the Salisbury Journal’s office re-open in the city centre, as the hub for bringing news and events to the Salisbury population and beyond.

“They have taken a new five-year lease.”
