“Strawberry Field”, the famous Liverpool landmark that was immortalized by John Lennon, will soon be open to the public for the very first time.
The site of a children’s orphanage that was frequented by the famous Beatle is being revitalized by The Salvation Army, which bought the Gothic Revival Mansion from a wealthy merchant’s widow in 1934.
In addition to making the location a training and work-placement hub for young people with learning disabilities, the restoration will also include a new Lennon exhibit that will function as a tourist attraction.
Attending the ground breaking ceremony was Julia Baird, the late singer’s half-sister. To commemorate the day, she buried a time capsule and praised the initiative.S
