10 High Street is the former home of the Andover Advertiser, founded by John Russell Fox who produced the first edition at this address on 1 January 1858. The premises were rebuilt by the Fox family 10 years later, but, in the same year, a new proprietor took over. In 1876, the paper changed hands again, to James Charles Holmes. The Holmes family then ran the Andover Advertiser for 110 years, until 1986.
