These are Chris O’Dell’s photos from her book and website taken during Christmas celebrations in 1973.

Ringo Starr and his wife Maureen Starkey bought their first home on this day. Sunny Heights was a large mock Tudor house in Weybridge, Surrey, less than a mile from John Lennon‘s house Kenwood.
Sunny Heights was bought for £37,000 from a Mr HE Pope. Mr Pope had changed the name of the house from Haleakala upon buying it in 1948. The Starkeys moved in shortly after buying it, and remained living there for three years until November 1968.
After the Starkeys bought Sunny Heights in July 1965 extensive renovations were begun on the property. They didn’t move in until just before Christmas 1965. After moving to the Elstead, Surrey house, Brookfields, they bought from Peter Sellers in 1968, they briefly returned to live temporarily at Sunny Heights again in late 1969 while searching for new home in London.

March 12 1969 London Police Drug Raid On George Harrison
On March 12th 1969, the London drug squad appeared at house of George Harrison and Pattie Boyd with a warrant and drug-sniffing canines. Boyd immediately used the direct hotline to Beatles headquarters, and George returned to find his home turned upside down. He is reported to have told the officers “You needn’t have turned the whole bloody place upside down. All you had to do was ask me and I would have shown you where I keep everything.”
Without his assistance, the constables, including Sergeant Pilcher who had directed the drug-related arrest of John Lennon the previous year, had already found a considerable amount of hashish. Harrison and Boyd were arrested and as they were being escorted to the police station, a photographer began shooting pictures of the famous couple. Harrison chased after the photographer, with the cops trailing right behind him down the London street. Finally, the man dropped his camera and George stomped on it before the officers subdued him.
Harrison and his model wife, who missed Paul and Linda McCartney’s wedding that same day because of the arrest, were released on bail. A few weeks later, Harrison and Boyd were allowed to plead guilty. Despite the rather prodigious amount of hash recovered from their home, the authorities were satisfied that it was all for their personal use. They were fined 250 pounds each, and even had a confiscated pipe returned to them. Ten years later, Boyd married guitarist Eric Clapton and Harrison sang and played at their wedding.
Sergeant Pilcher, the man behind the raid, was convicted of planting drugs in other cases and went to jail in 1972.
George stomped on the camera! That’s the best part!

Note: George and Pattie were taken to the local police station in Esher, not London. There does exist at least one photo of George at Kinfauns on the evening of the bust. George and Pattie did not miss Paul and Linda’s morning wedding because of the evening drug bust. George was at Apple and Pattie, after shopping in London that day, was at Kinfauns several hours after the wedding when the drug squad arrived with a warrant. The Harrisons had not planned to attend the McCartney wedding.
