The Sony/Netflix film was made at Brynkinalt Hall between Chirk and St Martin's.

It tells the DH Lawrence story of the steamy romance between Lady Chatterley, played by Emmy nominee Emma Corrin (The Crown) and Jack O'Connell (SAS Rogue Heroes).

Born into a life of wealth and privilege, Lady Chatterley falls out of love with her husband and begins a an affair with the gamekeeper on their estate.

Scenes are filmed both inside Brynkinalt Hall, a Grade ll listed building, and in the grounds, which straddle the England Wales border.

Its release this week has seen the film hailed by The Times’ top critic, Kevin Maher as “immensely subtle and moving". Limited screenings means the nearest cinema to Shropshire currently showing the film is the Curzon in Knutsford in Cheshire.

The custodians of Brynkinalt Hall, Iain and Kate Hill-Trevor, said that they were incredibly proud to have hosted the film crew and have some of Britain’s best talent on the estate.

"The film industry isn’t always glamorous, especially for the crew behind the scenes who put in hours each day to ensure everything is perfect for the stars.

"Early starts and late finishes meant long days for all of us on the Brynkinalt Estate."

"Please remember Brynkinalt is private property and is not open to the general public, except for specific events. Please see our website and follow our social media for updates on dates when the house and gardens are open for tours or events."
