Pattie Boyd, Ringo Starr & George Harrison on the set of A Hard Day’s Night (1964)
Eric Clapton fell in love with his best friend George Harrison’s wife, Pattie Boyd, became a heroin addict for four years because he couldn’t have her, and wrote the song ‘Layla’ about her. She eventually divorced George and married Eric, but they divorced after 10 years together.

Harrison bought Kinfauns for £20,000 on 17 July 1964, on the advice of Dr. Walter Strach, the Beatles’ accountant. Going house-shopping, he said later, “It was the first one I saw, and I thought, that’ll do.” He was joined there months later by wife-to-be Pattie Boyd. Harrison and Boyd were married on 21 January 1966, and lived in the house until 1970, when Harrison purchased Friar Park.
During 1967, Harrison and Boyd painted the outside of the house in psychedelic patterns; a mural around the fireplace was created by design collective The Fool, who also painted several Beatles musical instruments and Harrison’s Mini.
George Harrison and Pattie Boyd’s happiest years were spent here, the home is now demolished :(.
