A Suffolk estate’s hall with a long history of being a movie set could once again be welcoming a crew for filming next week.

Elveden Estate, near Thetford, has had signs up directing people to its hall since Monday, as equipment was believed to have been put in place for a possible Netflix film.

Little is known about the new project set to use the Grade II listed building, but it is not the first time the site has featured on films and TV.
