Wessex Sound Studios
In the 1960s, the gothic church hall, built in 1881, was redeveloped into a recording studio, which was called "Wessex Sound Studios". As a recording venue, the studio saw some of the most significant developments in popular music, hosting recordings by The Rolling Stones, Queen and The Clash, who recorded their album London Calling, ranked by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the top ten albums of all time, in the converted church building. The building is now a residential complex known as The Recording Studio.
