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).


John Lennon's Caravan and Circular Seat

It has been long thought that the gypsy caravan that John had in the garden at his house in Weybridge, Kenwood was lost when he had it taken to the island of Dorinish, but it appears that John had it placed in the grounds at Tittenhurst Park opposite the Keeper's Cottage. Also, the circular tree seat that John and Yoko sat on when they appeared in the Surprise Surprise footage, and took to Coventry Catherdral and was placed on The Unity Lawn on June 14th 1968 was eventually taken back by John and Yoko and placed in the Tittenhurst too. Thanks to Thomas Rhyner for these pics.

Lastly, John relaxes in the main house at Tittenhurst Park with a pair of embroided trousers.
John would let Yoko would spend time sewing buttons and sequins onto John's clothes when she had time.
