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 Day The Beatles Died?

The last time all four were photographed
together was was at a shoot 38 years
ago today (American time)

John and Yoko's home at Tittenhurst Park was the location
for the final photo session showing the four Beatles
together, an historic event which took place on
Friday, August 22, 1969, two days after
their last recording session together.

It was caught by the cameras of American photographer
Ethan Russell, veteran Daily Mail man Monte Fresco,
and the Beatles' assistant Mal Evans.

For the occasion, John and George donned wide-brimmed cowboy hats.
Yoko Ono Lennon and a pregnant Linda McCartney
(she was to give birth to daughter Mary six days
later) appeared in some photographs too."
