PTSG SAVES THE DAY AT QUARWOOD HOUSE
Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has completed a specialist electrical services project at Quarwood House, taking over from another provider that was unable to meet the client’s requirements.
Quarwood is a Victorian Manor near Stow-on-the-Wold in Gloucestershire. It was owned for 27 years by The Who’s bassist, John Entwistle. The Rhenish Gothic house, which has 55 rooms, was built in 1856-59. When Entwistle bought the home, he installed two recording studios, one on the main floor and one on the top floor, and a bar with game rooms. Known for a macabre sense of humour, Entwistle kept skeletons in the master bedroom to frighten guests.
Prior to PTSG being contracted, another lightning protection company tested the system in place at Quarwood House, but was only able to install additional rods, while the client’s insurer insisted on 10 ohms or less per position (three individual systems).

Alfred Hitchcock made Blackmail (1929), the first British talkie at the studios in 1929. At the end of the silent-film era, six new sound stages were built; three of these were sold to the British & Dominions Film Corporation. BIP became Associated British Picture Corporation (ABPC) in 1933. During World War II, the studios were used by the War Office for storage.
