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 handwritten lyrics for "I'm Only Sleeping" for sale

John Lennon's original handwritten lyrics for I'm Only Sleeping are expected to sell for £350,000 at auction. John wrote them on the back of a letter demanding £12 for a car phone and threatening legal action. He penned the words in April 1966, just days before the Fab Four recorded the song for album Revolver. His first version shows various scribbles and seems to be about his love of lying in bed rather than anything drug-induced. The lyrics will go under the hammer at Bonhams, London, on December 15. Consultant Stephen Maycock said: "You can see the creative process at work and the ideas that are coming to him as he writes it."

Lennon's lyrics for A Day In The Life sold for £810,000 earlier this year.
