Langton Hall has proudly been selected to appear on the second series of hit BBC Drama Gentleman Jack, the hall itself has strong ties to Anne Lister and Re-lives the times of old..
Filming began in Yorkshire this week with Suranne Jones set to reprise her role as 19th-century heiress Lister, who owned and ran the Shibden Hall estate, near Halifax.
Cast and crew were seen this week at Langton Hall, a Georgian country house near Malton that was once the family home of one of Lister's early lovers prior to her 'marriage' to Ann Walker - Isabella Norcliffe.
Parents doing the school run in the normally sleepy village of Langton were surprised to be met with traffic management lights and horse-drawn carriages blocking the highway.
Authentic gravel from the period had to be laid on the hall's drive, and special gates were fitted to the entrance in the formal late Victorian style.
The BBC is currently yet to announce a release date for Series 2.
