S Strawberry Studios
The famous recording studios once welcomed Sir Paul McCartney, The Stone Roses, Neil Sedaka, 10cc, The Smiths, and Joy Division through its doors.
For more than 25 years, Strawberry Studios was one of the most important recording facilities in Manchester - and one of the few in the UK outside London.
Opened initially in a 20-foot square room over a record shop in the town in 1967, and called Inner-City Studios, it found its feet as a premium spot after being taken over by Mindbenders guitarist and songwriter (and Droylsden lad) Eric Stewart and his former roadie Peter Tattersall.
Under their management, it was reborn as Strawberry Recording Studios - a tribute to The Beatles’ hit Strawberry Fields Forever - the name incorporated into law and sealed in history in October 1967.
