10 Admiral Grove

10 Admiral Grove, Dingle, Liverpool L8 8BH

A small property in The Dingle, Liverpool, is the house in which Richard Starkey, now Sir Ringo Starr lived for twenty years during his childhood and formative years.

Starr’s infant school, St. Silas Primary School, on Pengwern Street, was yards away from his front door. He was a sickly child and, due to his many absences from school, was taught to read and write at home. A severe bout of peritonitis led him to spend most of his seventh year at the Royal Children’s Hospital. When Starr was 13, his mother Elsie married a Londoner, Harry Graves. The Starkeys’ local pub, The Empress, where Elsie was a barmaid, adjoins Admiral Grove. The pub was immortalised in 1970 by being featured on the front cover of Starr’s first solo album Sentimental Journey.

In 2016, the house was bought by Beatles fan Jackie Holmes for £70,000 – Jackie also owns houses owned previously by George Harrison and John Lennon’s mother Julia.
