John Lennon‘s childhood house in LIVERPOOL, where he lived with his AUNT MIMI from the age of five, is in need of a new custodian.

‘Mendips’ on Menlove Avenue is a semi-detached property and was home to the former Beatle during childhood.

Given to the National Trust by John Lennon‘s widow, Yoko Ono, the property has attracted more than 7,000 visitors and has been looked after until now by Matthew Whitfield.

“Emphasis is very much on an ability to help with the living interpretation of the house,” said Simon Osbourne, the National Trust’s properties manager for Liverpool. “

The National Trust, which also owns [a][/a]’s former family house in Forthlin Road, runs joint tours with Mendips and aim to reopen both properties to the public on March 27.
