Childhood homes of Beatles' John Lennon and Paul McCartney to be preserved

LONDON (AP) ' The childhood homes of former Beatles John Lennon and Paul McCartney are to be preserved.

U.K. heritage minister John Penrose said Wednesday that Lennon's house in south Liverpool and McCartney's nearby home will be given a grade 2 listing, which means they cannot be altered without local authority permission.

Lennon lived at his house in 251 Menlove Avenue from 1945 to 1963 with his aunt and uncle after his parents separated when he was five. McCartney lived in nearby Forthlin Road for nine years from 1955. The two musicians wrote The Beatles' first No. 1 hit "Please Please Me" at Lennon's house.

The National Trust, a preservation group, already has restored the houses to look as they would have done when Lennon and McCartney were growing up.
