Strawberry Field: Where Something is Real

Strawberry Fields Forever is one of John Lennon and the Beatles greatest songs in my opinion.

When Beatles fans visit Liverpool, they queue up to have their photos taken in front of the famous red gates and can now wander the grounds too.

But what was Strawberry Field to John? It wasn’t those gates!

Watch this video to find out the REAL Strawberry Fields Forever!

Strawberry Field Forever

Step Inside St Peter’s Church where John Lennon sang in the Choir

Although St. PETER’S Church is famous for being the place where John Lennon met Paul McCartney on 6th July 1957, John had been attending Sunday School here from the age of 5. Many of his friends from The Quarrymen also attended here too.

John, his best friends Pete Shotton and Nigel Walley also sang in the choir, though it won’t surprise you that John was thrown out of the choir too!

Join me as I go through the doors and into the church to see inside the famous St Peter’s where John sang in the choir

John Lennon’s Woolton

In our latest Video on YouTube we are sharing some of the unseen footage and interviews from when we made “Looking for Lennon”.

Not many visitors to Liverpool realise that in the heart of Woolton, close to John Lennon’s home at “Mendips”, was a Quarry. This was still active in the 1950s. When the Quarrymen performed at the St Peter’s Garden Fete, they played on top of the Quarry.

You can view some drone footage (see photo) that we shot in the quarry – it is a residential area now – which looks over St Peter’s Church and the footpath, which many people also don’t know about, that runs from Lennon’s side of Woolton to St. Peter’s Church.
