Belton House has announced that filming which was due to take place at the National Turst property has been delayed.

The house announced on their Facebook page that the filming that was due to take place has now been delayed pushing the filming into the summer holidays.

The full estate will be closed from Wednesday, August 3 until Friday, August 12, and Monday, August 15, until Wednesday, August 17. The mansion will be closed from July 25 until August 26.

Last week, a Dr Who fan page suggested filming for the 60th anniversary of the BBC show would be taking place at Belton House. Neither Belton House nor the BBC would confirm the rumours.

The Belton House Facebook post reads: "The filming at Belton has been delayed due to circumstances beyond our control.

"We appreciate that the timing of the closure clashes with school holidays and we’re sorry for any disappointment this causes.

"We worked closely with the production company to try to avoid any closures during the school holidays, but unfortunately it wasn’t possible.

"Thank you in advance for your understanding and support.

"We recommend checking social media and the website before travelling as dates are subject to change."

The entire estate was originally to be closed from Sunday, July 17 until Thursday, July 21, and Monday August 1 until Saturday August 6.

The mansion was originally to be closed from July 17 until August 19.
