Also Meridian's studios in Newbury and New Hythe spring to mind as slightly non-obvious locations (though New Hythe is quite close to Maidstone, and Newbury is a reasonably big town in that part of the Meridian sub-regions)
I believe Meridian's franchise application stated they were going to have a studio in King's Hill (business park near West Malling - with a few blue chip company bases), but New Hythe was cheaper. As it happens, the studio at New Hythe was well built, with a reasonably high ceiling, soundproofed, next to the gallery. Better than some other studios I've been in.
Location wise, not the smartest industrial site, but reasonable access to the M20, in the days when all material was driven or biked back to base for editing.
I seem to remember that Virgin were going to have studios in Ashford, had they won the franchise. Not sure where Carlton were going to be.
