Bosses at Sheffield Manor Lodge are hoping to take advantage of the recent success of hit Tudor drama Wolf Hall.

The visitor site is highlighting its links to Cardinal Wolsey, one of the key characters in the BBC series, who stayed at Sheffield Manor Lodge for over two weeks after being accused of treason.

He died three days after leaving and local legend says he fell ill while staying in Sheffield.

Living History Officer Andy Messer said: “Not everyone realises that Sheffield has an important Tudor history.”
