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).


Up Your Legs

Whilst in New York in early December 1970, keen to include some new material in a festival of their films that Jonas Mekas had arranged for the Elgin Theatre, John and Yoko made two films - Up Your Legs and Fly.
Shot over two days, Up Your Legs was 80 minutes long and featured over 300 pairs of legs, photographed from the toes up to the top of the thighs. "We asked everybody to donate their legs for peace" said Yoko, and a host of celebrities obliged, including George Segal, Larry Rivers and D.A Pennebaker. The film ends with the Lennons showing their bare behinds.
