It's not quite Wolf Hall - but fans of the Bafta-winning 16th century period drama can get their hands on notorious cleric Cardinal Wolsey's old house after it was put up for sale.<br />
<br />
Henry VIII's right hand man lived at the Old Rectory during his time as a parish priest in Limington, a tiny village near Yeovil in Somerset, prior to his meteoric rise to power and subsequent demise.<br />
<br />
Wolsey was rector at St Mary's Church until 1509 when Henry VIII ascended the throne and appointed him to the privy council, the king's most trusted advisers.<br />
<br />
The Old Rectory is for sale with Knight Frank estate agents for £1.5m.
