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 and Yoko Ono: Jamming 1972

Here is some amazing raw footage of John Lennon and Yoko Ono jamming in 1972, John is in amazing playing form here. Here John is frantically playing some of the Rock 'n' Roll standards that he loved to play before The Beatles got a record deal. He starts with 'Rock Island Line' by Lonnie Donegan and 'Maybe Baby' 'Peggy Sue' by Buddy Holly. Up to his death this was still the type of music John loved to listen to and his jukebox was full of these songs that were so important to him. This footage is from the private collection of the John Lennon estate.
