Stoke regional daily makes move to old home

Local newspaper Sentinel, based in Stoke, has completed its move back to the area it first started out – just two months after announcing the relocation.

Journalists started working at the Hanley office in the middle of September 2013. Just a stone’s throw from the area it was first established nearly 160 years ago, Sentinel House has been designed round the needs of a modern newspaper.

A Grade II listed building that once hosted the local community Sunday School, the  office fit out  office fit out was challenging. Heeding best practices in modern office design and layout however, the old chapel and former solicitor’s office has been given a whole new look and feel.

Now able to comfortably place the 100 plus staff at the newspaper, the Sentinel’s Michelle Gesell said in a recent article:


“Our new offices are a modern communications hub, as befitting a newspaper and digital publishing business.

“While we’ve lovingly restored the building to its former glory we have also ensured that it is full of 21st Century technology and unashamedly modern décor.”


The managing director of the title continued to explain how it was an important decision for the business to take, and one that has been made at the right time.

She continued:


“This is a hugely important move for our business – one which puts us right back at the heart of the community we always seek to serve.”


The building is also in close proximity to the newly developing Central Business District of the West Midlands city. Gesell also explained how the new location makes it easier to network with readers and business partners.
