As former Grantham Journal offices are flattened, we want to hear from you




Former Grantham Journal offices are being demolished
Former Grantham Journal offices are being demolished

This was the scene yesterday as work continued to demolish the former offices of the Grantham Journal.

A bulldozer moved on to the site on Greenwood’s Row on Thursday last week, and the entire rear wall has now been removed. The building was constructed in 1959 and was home to the Journal until May last year, when the advertising and editorial teams moved to modern premises in St Peter’s Hill.

Grantham Estates bought the building from the Journal’s parent company, Johnston Press, and put forward plans to use the site for a car park. Permission was granted in June last year. The flattening of the building marks the end of an era for the town’s long-established and much-loved local newspaper. For decades the offices were a focal point for the community as staff and contributors recorded the happenings of our town.

Do you have any particular memories of visiting the old offices? Did you call in to share memorable experiences or tell us about a campaign you were involved in? We’d love to hear from you. Email: comment@granthamjournal.co.uk or write to us at: St Peter’s House, St Peter’s Hill, Grantham.
