What is this mystery press?

Saw this picture on Pinterest where there were no details given. The Croxford Reliant would appear to be used for printing newspapers from a web or reel. It looks very small, though. Is it maybe a folding unit?

A lot of the works seem to be out of shot, in the roof area. Not sure what the huge pile of typecases is all about!

Anyone know where this is? It looks like some kind of museum. Due to the age of the item I'm not expecting a difinitive answer on this one, but, as always, idle speculation welcome.

Neil Southerington on facebook says "Looks like it takes the two webs and cuts them into two 8 page sections.
The Press being on the floor above."

It looks as if it may have been constructed for the Harry Potter film.

Well, I never thought this topic would lead us to Warner Bros. Studios, but there you are!

Reminds me of that thread we had about poorly executed newspaper front pages from Hollywood!  ;D
