The Beatles' Last Photo Shoot: August 1969

Tittenhurst was the home of John and Yoko from late summer 1969 until August 1971 when they moved to America, and subsequently the home of Ringo Starr. John bought the property for £145,000 and spent more than double that amount on renovations to the property.

The Beatles' very last photo shoot took place here on 22nd August 1969, with one of the many images from that session appearing on the cover of the Hey Jude album (released in 1970 in the US and 1979 in the UK). It was caught by the cameras of American photographer Ethan Russell, veteran Daily Mail man Monty Fresco, and the Beatles' assistant Mal Evans. Some amateurish film footage was also shot on this day. John and George donned wide-brimmed cowboy hats. Yoko Ono Lennon and a pregnant Linda McCartney appeared in some of the photographs too.
