Inside £12m mansion owned by Pink Floyd's David Gilmour

Haunting images have revealed an abandoned mansion which once housed a world-famous recording studio used by superstars including Rod Stewart, Tom Jones and the Kaiser Chiefs.

Hook End Manor in Oxfordshire was once home to Pink Floyd vocalist and guitarist David Gilmour. 

The 11-bedroom Elizabethan manor house, set in 25 acres, boasted a state-of-the-art recording studio where Spandau Ballet and Jamiroquai also recorded hit tracks.

The home - worth around £12million - was sold by record producer Trevor Horn in 2007 after his wife Jill Sinclair, 55, was struck by a stray pellet fired from her son Aaron’s air rifle in the garden of the mansion.

The pellet lodged in Jill's neck, piercing an artery and she was rushed to hospital, but despite prompt medical attention she had to be put into a drug-induced coma. She died in 2014.

University student and part-time DJ Aaron, then 23, and his father had been using the rifle for target practice. 

Horn recorded the hit single Video Killed The Radio Star and masterminded the success of the 1980s group Frankie Goes To

He bought Hook End Manor in the 1990s before placing it on the market for £10 million in 2007.

The house - thought to have been built for the Bishop of Reading around 1580 - boasted a gym, heated swimming pool, croquet lawn and tennis court, pergola and terracing.
