Chastleton House

Photographer: Paul Raeside

Client: BBC

Location: Oxfordshire, UK

Shoot Date:
May 29, 2007
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. Owned by the same increasingly impoverished family until 1991, the house remained essentially unchanged for nearly 400 years as the interiors and contents gradually succumbed to the ravages of time.
With virtually no intrusion from the 21st century, this fascinating place exudes an informal and timeless atmosphere in a gloriously unspoilt setting.
Chastleton House was used as a film location in the recent BBC TV series of Wolf Hall.
