John Lennon's home is on Menlove Road in Liverpool, England. It was here the future Beatle lived from 1945 to 1963. After leaving his home on Newcastle Road Lennon moved into Mendips to live with his Aunt and Uncle, Mimi and George Smith, although his mother, Julia, visited him frequently. When he was 17 Julia was hit by a car and killed while walking home from a visit to the house. While living here Lennon formed The Quarrymen, then The Beatles, and first met Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. The home is now part of the National Trust. A blue plaque marks the house.
