This was the last day of The Beatles’ three-day shoot for Help! on Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire.
The cold and windy conditions were evidently taking their toll on the group, who looked weather-beaten in many scenes and stills from the shoot.
After the day’s work The Beatles returned to the Antrobus Arms in Amesbury, from where they left for London on 6 May 1965.
