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 interviewed by Bob Harris: Old Grey Whistle Test 18th April 1975

Bob Harris interviewed John Lennon for The Old Grey Whistle Test on the 18th April 1975.
When Bob was interviewed, and asked what his most memorable interview was he said [Without hesitation] "John Lennon in 1975 for Whistle Test. We'd been trying to get him for absolutely ages and he phoned from his office in New York and invited us over. We spent pretty much a day together, and it was the day that they discovered that Yoko was pregnant with Sean, so he was in a fantastically wonderful mood. He saw it as a great opportunity to send a postcard to the Uk, basically because he couldn't leave America due to the green card problems, so we got him at the best time. He and I got on like a house on fire - it happens with some people - and I think the interview reflects that".
