BBC’s Wolf Hall in Somerset.

BBC and Channel 4 have been broadcasting quite a bit of historical drama of late and the one I have just started to watch is Wolf Hall which is based around Henry VIII and his wives. As a Natural Trust member I have had free access to Natural Trust properties. For the first time this year I found time to make use of my pass and went out exploring. Within 45 mins drive of me is several Natural Trust properties and my target was to visit Montacute House in the picturesque village of Montacute just outside of Yeovil in Somerset.

Not knowing anything about this place I just dropped in on a whim. As it turned out, this place along with Barrington Court (20 mins away ) were used in the BBC series Wolf Hall and is based around Henry VIII and his wives. I have just started to watch the series and not sure what to make of it yet.
