Noel Gallagher’s studio to be sold

Place where Oasis recorded 'Heathen Chemistry' up for grabs

The recording studio where Oasis recorded their ‘Heathen Chemistry’ album in 2002, is being sold.

Wheeler End Studio had been on long-term let to Noel Gallagher, who had invited friends such as The Coral and Ian Brown to record there.

The studio, located in Buckinghamshire, has also been used by the likes of George Harrison, Robbie Williams and Paul Weller.

The studio has a price tag of £3.9 million and the owner, Suzanne Lee, former wife of blues rocker Alvin Lee, is hoping a buyer will buy it to and continue to put it to recording use.

“After 27 years of running the studio, I am incredibly attached to Wheeler End, so selling it hasn’t been the easiest of decisions to make,” she said.

“But the time has come to move on. What I want more than anything else is to see it sold to someone who intends to carry on using it as a recording studio and to preserve its amazing heritage and atmosphere.”
