The Beatles walked to an overgrown cricket pitch with high grass, where George Harrison, Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Ringo Starr stood in a row while being filmed and photographed from a variety of angles.
Lennon and Ono then led two donkeys from the nearby stables, and The Beatles posed with them.
The Beatles were then photographed in several locations:
Underneath the cypress tree near a statue of Diana, the Roman goddess of the hunt.
Beneath and in front of two weeping blue atlas cedar trees.
