Notes: This was the first filming location of the first series, commencing 14/04/2008. At the time of my first visit in 2012 the property was undergoing extensive restoration work. My second visit in 2013 shows there is still much to do. Visiting in 2014 shows some small progress. My 2015 visit shows that nearly everything is complete. Further visit required for internal shots.
