Tittenhurst Park

This Tittenhurst Park blog is dedicated to John Lennon's home in Sunningdale, near Ascot, Berkshire between 1969 and 1971. The aim is to gather as much material relating to the estate as possible - obviously with the emphasis on the Lennon-era, but also concerning Tittenhurst Park as it was before and after John Lennon's ownership. In addition, there will be posts about and associated with the Beatles, plus any other rubbish I feel like. The blog is purely meant for the entertainment of anyone (assuming there is actually anyone) who, like me, has an unhealthy interest in one particular Georgian mansion. Those with anything interesting to contribute in the way of links, photos, scans, stories etc. please do contact me: tittenhurstlennon@gmail.com
(Legal: this blog is strictly non-commercial. All material is the property of the photographer/artist/copyright holder concerned. Any such who wishes a picture etc to be removed should contact me and I will do so. Alternatively, if someone is happy to see their photo on here, but would like a credit/link then let me know and I'll be happy to provide one).



The first version of Apotheosis, filmed in September 1969 from a helicopter, had proven unsatisfactory and so a re-make was attempted on Friday 5th December 1969. With the BBCtv World of John & Yoko documentary crew in tow, the Lennons were driven through the snow covered countryside to Lavenham in Suffolk where, hunched together and peeking out from under long black capes, they looked on as a hot air balloon was inflated and launched from the Market square. On board was their ever reliable film cameraman Nick Knowland to capture the views..
