    The childhood homes of former Beatles John Lennon and Paul McCartney are to be preserved and cannot be altered without permission, reports the Associated Press.

    UK heritage minister John Penrose affirmed 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, so that's a historical locale if there ever was one!

    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.
