The Mill was one of the world's finest recording studios, built at the very peak of the recording industry's success in the mid 1970's. It was built and privately owned by the late Gus Dudgeon, whose attention to fine detail produced a beautiful recording environment and a legendary sound quality from the superb MCI equipment.

The property is an old watermill that straddles a quiet backwater of the River Thames near Maidenhead in the Berkshire countryside, which had a studio and control room with access over the weir to a residential wheelhouse on its own small island with the river flowing underneath.

Gus bought the property in 1975 with the purpose of building his own recording studio in order to re-mix Elton John's albums for quadraphonic vinyl album release.

Subsequent owners included Jimmy Page (when the studio reverted to its old name "The Sol") and Chris Rea.

This website contains details of the people, equipment and music that were involved with this great studio, including a photo gallery. If you have any information or material that could help build this website, then please feel free to contact me.
