The firm commented: "The Harrison family moved into the then council house in 1950, when George was just six years old; he spent 12 happy years living there before fame and stardom whisked him away in 1962.

"Despite his young age, 25 Upton Green became a regular rehearsal venue for The Quarrymen, due in large part to the tolerance of George's parents."
