Which South Yorks landmark will be a small-screen star?

A LANDMARK South Yorkshire building will make an appearance on the small screen tomorrow.

Lost in Austen, a time-travelling take on the literary classic Pride and Prejudice, was partly filmed at Cannon Hall Museum, near Barnsley.

The series starts tomorrow on ITV1 at 9pm.

Jemima Rooper – Thelma Bates in the fantasy horror TV series Hex – stars as Amanda Price, a frustrated romantic who lives for reading and adores the characters in her Jane Austen books.

Disillusioned with her life in London and disenchanted with her boyfriend, Amanda discovers Elizabeth Bennet in her bathroom.

Soon she finds herself swapping places with the popular romantic heroine, entering the fictional world of Pride and Prejudice, and taking centre stage in the celebrated love story.

Several areas inside and outside Cannon Hall feature in the production, including the oak-panelled ballroom.

Among the stars in Lost in Austen are Hugh Bonneville and Alex Kingston as Mr and Mrs Bennet and Elliot Cowan as Mr Darcy.
