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 Irish Tapes

On Friday 12th November 1971 John and Yoko recorded several demo's of the new composition "Luck of the Irish" at their Bank Street apartment. A 17 minute monochrome videotape recording was made by John Reilly which included some discussion as well as performances of the song. Reilly together with Stefan Moore was producing a film with a pro-IRA slant and was supported financially by John and Yoko. It should be added that this was before the IRA began their bombing campaign in mainland Britain.
