Many people have posted on the web that Sandy Denny was living at 93 Castelnau, Barnes, London SW13 9EL UK when she fell and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Actually she fell multiple times (she had a habit of self harm and throwing herself off bar stools and stairwells) prior to her hospitalization. At some unknown point during the first half of April 1978, Denny suffered yet another major fall at her home at 40 The Twistle Byfield, Daventry, UK. She was staying with a friend at another home when she was found unconscious at the foot of the staircase. She was rushed to Queen Mary’s Hospital in nearby Roehampton and on April 19th she was transferred to Atkinson Morley Hospital in Wimbledon where she was declared brain dead.
