Easton Neston home to Leon Max and the former home of Lord Hesketh featured in "The Country House Revealed" on BBC TV on Tuesday evening.

The documentary tried to answer the mystery around the architect of Easton Neston near Towcester, completed in 1702 by Nicholas Hawksmor, but how much was it actually influenced or worked on by Christopher Wren of St Paul's Cathedral fame?

You can watch BBC iPlayer of the show if you missed it. 

Trish York who worked at Easton Neston in the 1970s appeared in the programme said on Twitter, "Filmed dialogue for two hours constantly and they use that silly snippet. What a terrible waste. "

She went on to comment that perhaps the DVD will have more in it and that she may yet write a book on the subject.

Part of the programme featured a video shot last year featuring models Aida and Ieva and top model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Models were photographed on location at the historic property of Easton Neston in Towcester.

The property has undergone major renovation over the last few years and now head quarters Max Studios who relocated from California to Towcester several years ago.

The designer and owner of Max Studios that are based at Easton Neston, Leon Max also features in the video.
