ONE of Rotherham’s finest buildings will be appearing on TV this weekend — but from an unusual angle!

Wentworth Woodhouse will be seen from the air via a drone in a new TV series hosted by history buff Sir Tony Robinson.

The stately home, which is being restored, will appear in Hidden Britain by Drone on Channel 4 at 8pm on Sunday (August 5).

Former Time Team presenter Sir Tony will use the latest aerial filming technology in the series to offer up new views of historic sites.

A spokesperson for production company Windfall Films said: “Once one of the most important, politically powerful and ostentatious places on earth - Wentworth’s glittering life came to an end in the 20th century. Years of neglect have seen the house spiral into disrepair. Today, only our drone can see its true majesty.”

Sarah McLeod, CEO of Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust, said: “The house has starred in numerous TV programmes in its own right and has been the backdrop to many a blockbuster movie but never before have the cameras been able to convey its huge size and majesty and its rich architectural features.

“The drones give us incredible insight — a real bird’s-eye view.”
