Long Description:
This newspaper is now part of a large group of newspapers, but it still has its own printing presses in the city of Bradford. It has an audited circulation of 28839.

The offices to the right of the print hall were built in 1853, originally it was a warehouse for merchants. The Telegraph and Argus moved into here in 1925, and it originally contained the printing presses. The need to install more modern printing presses led to the building of the new print hall which was opened on 22 July, 1981 by the Duchess of Kent. It has a glazed facade, which from the distance is opaque, but if you get close you can see the printing presses.

The building is built into a slope and the rolls of paper are delivered to the front, pictured which is the lower level. The finished newspapers are sent to the higher level of the building, and packed into the delivery vans at the rear of the building.

The Telegraph and Argus is part of the Newsquest group which prints around 200 different newspaper titles.
