VISITING WOOLTON?

Mendips
(251 Menlove Avenue)

John Lennon lived at Mendips, 251 Menlove Avenue, Allerton, from 1945 to March 1963 with his Aunt Mimi, who used to help John reply to fan mail. John left to live in London and Mimi continued to live here until 1964 when John bought her a bungalow in Poole, Dorset.

On the 8th December 2000, marking the 20th anniversary of his death, English Heritage installed a Blue Plaque to commemorate John having lived at Mendips from 1945 to 1963.

Mendips was eventually purchased by Yoko Ono Lennon in 2002 for the sum of 150,000 and she donated the house to the National Trust who have restored it to a 1950s style, and as closely as possible to how it would have looked when John lived there.

Mendips was officially opened to the public on 29th March 2003 and the ceremony was attended by Yoko Ono Lennon who said: "When John's house came up for sale I wanted to preserve it for the people of Liverpool and John Lennon and Beatles fans all over the world."

There is an oak tree, planted on 9th October 2000, for John's 60th birthday, located in St. John's Garden, Old Haymarket, in the city centre.
