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).


Tittenhurst Park Recent Photographs - Grounds, Summer House & Cottage

These photographs were taken a few years ago when a UK based Mechanical and Engineering company called Yates Associates built a small Palm House (below) within the grounds at Tittenhurst Park, similar to the one at Kew Botanical Gardens.

One of Guest Houses at Tittenhurst Park, possibly the same as seen in the colour phorograph above?

It was decided that, as a surprise gift for the Sheikh (current owner of Tittenhurst Park) that in 2002, a summerhouse should be built in the grounds of Tittenhurst Park. The summerhouse was originally built as a majlis, or meeting house. The summer house was no ordinary garden building. The fitting out works alone were to cost in the order of £2 million.

This is an a rather 'trippy' washed out image of the Summer House at Tittehhurst Park
