The Weston Mercury and North Somerset Times office is up for sale as the company looks to relocate in Weston. 

Archant, which owns the iconic listed building, is selling the town centre office following a property review. 

Staff from the Mercury and Times will be moving to a new site in the town once a suitable office has been found. 

Editor Vicky Angear said: “Even though we will be moving out of our office in the town centre, we want to stress that we remain committed to a future in Weston.  

"The search is now on for new premises, as we look for a site in Weston at the heart of the communities we serve."
