Got in here by chance and only had a very limited time to take pics (on phone) but thought it was worth an upload.

These are the old premises of the Coventry Evening Telegraph that has now moved to a new building (they moved in 2012).

Here is some history (taken from the Coventry Telegraph's website)
The paper was founded in 1891 by William Iliffe as the Midland Daily Telegraph, a four-page broadsheet costing a halfpenny.

During the Second World War, the Telegraph’s Hertford Street offices and the Vicar Street printing works were bombed, but the paper never missed a day’s production.

At around the same time the paper became a tabloid and changed its name to the Coventry Evening Telegraph.

After the war the paper, like the city, looked to a new future.

In 1953, it broke 100,000 daily sales and in 1957 work started on a purpose-built headquarters in Corporation Street, with staff relocating in 1959.

District editions were launched in 1967 and in 1968 the paper was the first in Britain to publish same-day colour pictures of the Mexico Olympics, repeating the feat in its coverage of the 1969 moon landing.

In the early 1990s the 30-year-old print presses were replaced in a £6.6million overhaul and full computerised page make-up arrived in 1994.

Great report. Fascinating stuff.
Looks really good in there. I think they have moved up to the Canal Basin.
