Beatles drummer Ringo – with Barbara Bach – brought Rydinghurst and its 200 acres for £2million back in 1999.
Starr now aims to sell off the Surrey property. It’s a million miles from his childhood home at 10 Admiral Grove, Dingle, Liverpool
The Grade-II listed Jacobean mansion is likely to fetch ten-times more than he paid for it!
The move ends a nearly five-decade association of Surrey with The Beatles, which began in 1965 – when accountants devised a scheme to ensure their wealth would accumulate.

The estate, near Cranleigh, Surrey will go on sale this week.
