Kenwood: staff flat 2006.

A photo of the staff flat above the garage. I´m not sure if this was actually there in the 1960s, but if so then it´s possible Dot Jarlett lived here. (I've since discovered that this garage is completely new, having been built in the mid-90s).


  1. The full-time gardener, Anthony; their housekeeper -Dot and chauffeur also called Anthony did not live at 'Kenwood' according to Hunter Davies who interviewed Lennon during this period. Quote: "None of them live in"..

  2. Right. I wonder if this bit existed in the 60s then. Possibly not. The attic was probably the staff living area when Kenwood was first built.
