historic house Oakwell Hall is set to hit the big screen in the BBC’s major new drama.
The Elizabethan manor in Birstall has starred in Wuthering Heights, The Secret Diaries of Anne Lister and Lost in Austen.
Its latest television role will see it appear in the seven-part adaptation of Susanna Clarke’s historical fantasy novel Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.
The tale, which is set in 19th century England, is based on the concept that magic once existed in the country and has returned with Gilbert Norrell and Jonathan Strange.
To coincide with Oakwell’s latest big screen role a series of special tours have been organised for members of the public.
They will get the chance to see how the rooms at the hall are transformed for filming as well as the props that were used.
Tours are set to start today and will be held on February 7 and March 7 from 2pm to 3pm. Places must be booked in advance.
Admission is £5 per adult and £2.50 per child, which includes entry to the Hall.
