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 - Ringo & 'Photograph'

Ringo bought Tittenhurst Park from John Lennon on the 18th September 1973, and moved his family into the twenty-six room mansion. The recording studio that John had installed was duly named Startling Studio and opened for hire. Ringo also started Wobble Music Ltd., a music publishing company. He also contributed some drum work to George's Living in the Material World which was released that year. With George Harrison and John Lennon, he filed suit against manager Alan Klein. Ringo's hit single "Photograph" was released in the fall, followed later in December by "You're Sixteen." Perhaps the most important event of the year was the debut of his most critically acclaimed album Ringo in November. All three of his former Beatle bandmates contributed tracks and performed on the album. John and George were present during the recording of "I Am the Greatest" making Ringo the closest thing to Beatles reunion that the world would have for a long time.
