Chastleton House, Oxfordshire, Location for BBC Wolf Hall

A rare gem of a Jacobean country house, Chastleton House was built between 1607 and 1612 by a prosperous wool merchant as an impressive statement of wealth and power. Their descendants later lost their wealth and so could not afford to update the original building. For that reason Chastleton has remained an exceptionally well-preserved time capsule. It was last occupied in the 1950s but hadn't been updated since the 1930s. More interiors to follow with details of camera, settings etc

I think there's an association between Chastleton House and Croquet - possibly the establishment of the rules.
