Deatiled location map


After a decade and a half of residing at the Cressyholme Farm site, Trackside Studio will close at the end of February 2023.

It is usual on occasions such as these to use the words along the lines of: "with sadness" or "it is with regret", however, although we shall miss dearly our regular musician customers who have recorded and rehearsed at the studio over the past 15 years, we will still be available for recording either live at your gig or at a venue or location of your chioce.

Our website will be redeveloped in due course to reflect the new business model going forward. In the meantime, our contact details remain the same.

For those who wish to know, the premises at Unit C8 Cressyholme is being redeveloped for other non-musical purposes and as such there will be no studio facilities at that location.

I look forward to all past and present customers keeping in touch and remember: we can still continue to record, mix and master your musical creations.

For the time being, the old website content continues below...
