The original studio, Space Studios was built by Alvin Lee of the band Ten Years After when he first bought the house. Many recordings were made during Alvin Lee's tenure including On The Road To Freedom and Rocket Fuel before he sold the house and studio to David Gilmour of the band Pink Floyd, who used the studio to record parts of the band’s 1983 album The Final Cut. The band’s inflatable pig, first used to promote their Animals album six years earlier, was stored in one of the outbuildings. Gilmour sold the house and studio to Trevor Horn who turned it into Sarm West.  The studio is now owned by Mark White singer/songwriter with the band Godnose.
