"However, we can confirm it is less than the figure of £1 million which has been suggested elsewhere, which may be to do with the wider impact of the film on the local economy.
"This filming is a fantastic opportunity for the city and the council, not only to make much needed income, but also to promote Wollaton Hall to a potential international audience and attract future visitors."
