Chastleton House was built by a rich wool merchant, whose descendants later lost their wealth and so could not afford to update the original building. For that reason Chastleton has remained an exceptionally well-preserved time capsule.
Chastleton’s small stone courtyard provided the location for the dramatic scenes from Cromwell’s miserable childhood at a blacksmiths in Putney, while interiors represent Wolf Hall itself, the Seymour family seat and the place where Jane Seymour first catches Henry’s eye.
