Lincolnshire Echo moves out of city centre offices

The end of an era

Local newspaper the Lincolnshire Echo and Lincolnshire Live website has moved out of its city centre offices in the end of an era for local news.

Several notices in the windows of the office at the bottom of Witham Wharf tell people the Echo has moved to The Regatta just off Doddington Road.

It comes after a few problems with the building, including when the ceiling fell and water started to pour down.

The Echo had been at the Brayford Wharf North property there since they sold their former, much larger building, to the University of Lincoln in 2009 – now called the David Chiddick building.

The Lincolnshire Echo has been supplying the county with a local paper since the first edition was printed in 1893 and is now published every Thursday.

Local titles are being forced to move out of their iconic headquarters as cutbacks make them too big for the remaining staff, according to HoldtheFrontPage.co.uk.

Back in 2011, the Lincolnshire Echo published its last daily edition before it moved to a weekly print run to be distributed every Thursday.

The Lincolnite approached the Lincolnshire Echo and was passed onto the parent company Reach PLC who did not comment by the time of publication.
