More Knole Park: more Knole Park.

More Knole Park...and more manna for tache aficionados. As previously noted, it's hard to place the exact location of parts of the SFF shoot, due to the ravages of time (and golf) - but the golf course road is still there:

And just for the sake of it, the original press ad for the single, showing the relative positions of boyhood homes and inspirational locations:

Many thanks to Ian Drummond for the Knole photos.

    Just think how many millions of people must have thought that Knole Park was Strawberry Field. And how many Beatleheads have experienced (as I did) strolling through Knole for the first time and thinking, "This all looks very familiar....."

  2. A good bet they are the same Timpani's that belonged to Abbey Rd. that Ringo used on "Every Little Thing" and the Abbey Rd. LP.

  3. I love the advert for the single as the location of my house is on it. Just between the 'P' and the bottom border. It lifts my spirits enormously!

  4. I'm a bit curious to know why kettle drums are placed around the grounds. Any thoughts on that- just curious.
