Last week saw the debut of the hit new time-twisting crime thriller Bodies based on the graphic novel of the same name written by Sheffield's-own Si Spencer.
"If not, see if you can spot us as Longharvest Lane This area of the House isn’t accessible to the public but was used as a filming location for the series between March and September 2022.
"We’re delighted to have been featured in this dystopian detective drama, alongside other Yorkshire locations, to help support the growth of the northern filming industry."
The story of Bodies centers on solving how a body - the same body - is found on Longharvest Lane in 1890, 1941, 2023 and 2053, leading to a detective from each time period investigating the case.
As such a crucial piece of the puzzle, the out-of-bounds nook at Wentworth Woodhouse will lend its presence to many scenes throughout the limited series.
Peaky Blinder’s Stephen Graham plays a central role as Commander Mannix, while the four detectives are played by Unorthodox’s Shira Haas, Jacob Fortune-Lloyd from The Queen’s Gambit, Amaka Okafor from The Sandman, and Kyle Soller, best known for Anna Karenina.
It's far from the first time Wentworth Woodhouse has been used for filming, and has been the set for Oscar-winning feature films such as Darkest Hour and worldwide hit TV series including ITV’s Victoria and BBC’s Gentleman Jack, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Charles III, and Billionaire Boy.
