I don't think it's Tittenhurst (which is described as Georgian).  In Tittenhust the windows (especially the groundfloor, where it looks like the Beatle photos are set) are tall floor to ceiling type, with distinctive down-the-middle frames. Our unseen photos don't look like this - with the little frames it looks older (tudor?). Also the magnificent fireplace definately looks pre-Georgian (god bless the internet). Also the room looks shabby - peeling plaster -nothing like the other interior shots.

Well, it was a huge mansion with lots of rooms ... I think John and Yoko made bigger rooms out of the smaller ones and this pic could be from those early days when that was not done yet ... they moved there that summer precisalley ...

... or maybe they're at Friar's Park? ... that could fit well too (indians and windows)  ;D
... but not the dates  :-/

Ah, speculations, speculations ...

"Originally, the main house comprised many small (well, smallish) rooms, but walls were ripped out at John and Yoko's request to create more open space."
from here: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/carousel/pob41.html  (Yoko said it somewhere too)


"May 04
Sunday Maclen, on behalf of John, buys `Tittenhurst', at Sunningdale, Ascot, Berkshire, for 145,000 pounds.  

Aug 11
Monday John and Yoko move to `Tittenhurst'."

I meant that you cannot tell from the picture whether the rooms are large or small. No need to bring another dozen links.

Who's the blonde with the excessive knitwear? Patti?
And wasn't Bob supposed to be there. Would have been a great photo-op.
And they flew back to Tittenhurst by helicopter. Either the Indians were waiting, or that was some f***-off big chopper.

I understood that you thought that my remark about John and Yoko and the huge rooms was a speculation ... but if you read again my reply I was trying to explain that maybe the image of that particular room is somewhat shabby because they were making improvements in the house ... well, it doesn't matter  :) ...

That's the thing: where's Ringo and why all those indians there? ... the indians could have came after John and George and the others and Ringo left ... speculations again  ;D

From a book with archives of the Daily Mirror:

John, George and Ringo with Yoko, Pattie and Maureen watching JBob Dyaln on stage at the Isle of Wight Pop Festival on 1 September. The Beatles and The Rolling Stones were due to stay with Dylan at the sixteenth-century farmhouse he'd rented on the island. 'The Beatles have asked me to work with them', said Dylan on 27 August.

But then: John and George could have come together with the Indians anywhere before they left to pick up Ringo and go to the festival.

A C16 Farmhouse would tie in nicely with the photos (though I'm no expert)
