The ex Beatle's widow says she wanted "to ensure that the property remains in the hands of the people of Liverpool"...
The house, located at 251 Menlove Avenue, is where he lived with his aunt Mimi and is thought to have worked on the Beatles classic ‘Please Please Me’.
The semi-detached house has been bought by John Lennon, “to ensure that the property remains in the hands of the people of Liverpool”, according to a statement.
She said: “I am thrilled that we have managed to buy John Lennon‘s main childhood home. It is especially pleasing that we will be able to keep such an important part of John Lennon‘s and the Beatles history intact and out of the hands of unsympathetic private developers.
“I think Menlove Avenue has an important place in Beatles history and it saddened me to think that it might be lost. The fact that this is happening in the same week that Liverpool Airport is officially opened as Liverpool John Lennon Airport would have made my husband very happy.”
John Lennon will be in Liverpool today (March 15) to unveil a statue of [a][/a] at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
