Wool Hall Studios

The Wool Hall Studios were created in the 1980s by the band Tears For Fears.  It is located in Church Street in the village of Beckington about 15km southof Bath.   

The studio is housed in an historical building and was originally going to be only a private studio for the band.  Soon however, other bands begn to use the facility.  This was particularly true after the SSL 6056 analog console was established.  Paul Weller, The Pretenders,  The Smiths, Joni Mitchell, 808 State, the Stereophonics, etc., were just some of the people who used the studios for recording.  

Van bought the studios in 1994 after recording five albums there.  The studios have been closed for a few years now.
