Location: 36 Deanecroft Road, Eastcote, Pinner

Description: This is where a young Royston Ellis grew up with his parents Jack and Alma Ellis. Ellis is a prolific British writer heavily influenced by the American Beat Generation.

In June 1960, the young poet travelled to Liverpool University to perform a poetry reading with jazz backing. He actively searched for local musicians to accompany him and met The Beatles.

He connected with John Lennon in particular, with both sharing an enthusiasm for the American Beat poets. Ellis ended up staying with a very early incarnation of The Beatles for a whole week.

Ellis introduced them to dope and also claims that he suggested the re-spelling of Beetles to Beatles.

Ellis's 1964 novel, Myself For Fame, is about a fictional pop star, with a chapter set in Liverpool that appears to be based on his mindblowing experiences with The Beetles in 1960.
