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 Home Video Demo: Dear Yoko

A rare home video of John Lennon in 1980, performing one of the Double Fantasy songs 'Dear Yoko' on an acoustic guitar. This is one of the rarest John Lennon home videos I have ever seeen. The story behind this one is that John recorded many videos of himself singing songs (maybe John Lennon invented YouTube?!). This was recorded at Cold Spring Harbour on Long Island, New York, where they had a place. Yoko gave this tape to the US TV show 'Inside Edition" on the 25th Anniversary of John's death. The date for this recording is April 1980. It's great to see John sing 'Dear Yoko' so well. A nice rarity of a home recording to his beloved.
