Strawberry Fields Forever - The entrance gates to Strawberry Field, this was a Salvation Army children's home in Woolton, a suburb of Liverpool, England.

The name of the home became world famous in 1967 with the release of The Beatles single "Strawberry Fields Forever" written by John Lennon. Lennon grew up near the home (his childhood home where he was brought up by his Aunt was round the corner on Menlove Avenue backs onto the woods here), and he used to play in the wooded area behind the building, which Lennon nicknamed in the plural "Strawberry Fields".
