Scenes for The Irregulars, an eight-part thriller inspired by the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, were shot at Wentworth Woodhouse

One of the executive producers for the series, which hits screens worldwide on Friday, March 26, worked on the hit BBC show Peaky Blinders.

Long-abandoned servants’ quarters at Wentworth Woodhouse, the enormous stately home in Rotherham, were transformed into the Duck and Quiver Inn – a principal filming location for the programme.

Wentworth Woodhouse in Rotherham was one of the main filming locations for new Netflix drama The Irregulars.

The Green Dining Room, which is probably most notable for the arsenic used to colour the wallpaper, also doubles as the bedroom of Prince Leopold in the series.

Filming took place at Wentworth Woodhouse in late 2019 and early 2020, before the pandemic hit.

Sarah McLeod, CEO of Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust, which is restoring the property, said: “We were thrilled to host the world's leading streaming entertainment service and hope they return if there’s a second season.

“Filming is a very important source of income for the trust. We will be glued to The Irregulars. It’s always exciting when we have film crews with us, but even more so when we finally get to see the production on screen.”

The Irregulars, created by Tom Bidwell, promises to take Arthur Conan Doyle’s tales ‘to a new dimension’, with crimes assuming a ‘horrifying supernatural edge’ as a gang of troubled street teens in Victorian London battle dark forces.
