Wolf Hall

Wolf Hall, the BBC Two dramatisation of Hilary Mantel’s novels, Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies, was a stunning production, with superb acting and an incredibly authentic feel – right down to using low-light cameras so scenes could be illuminated by candlelight only.

They also used some of my favourite historic properties as filming locations. These include Barrington Court, Montacute House and Wells Cathedral in Somerset, and Lacock Abbey and Great Chalfield Manor in Wiltshire.
Here are some of my photographs of these beautiful places, most taken last June.
