Legendary Beatles Strawberry Field gates painted yellow

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Iconic gates made famous by a  Beatles song were painted yellow  by a mysterious “artist”. Merseyside Police were making  enquiries after tourists arrived at  the entrance to former children’s  home Strawberry Field in Woolton  yesterday to find the top half of one  of the gates had been painted  yellow.

The message “There is always a  field for imagination. John you  know you should be glad” had been  daubed on the wall next to the gates  – which became a place of  pilgrimage for fans of the Fab Four  after John Lennon penned the song  Strawberry Fields Forever. Police said the incident was  reported to them by a tour operator  who arrived at the gates just before  midday and found the yellow paint  still wet.
