Here is what is being questioned and answered in the above Daily Mail article. Question. The Second Series of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet (Shown in 1985?) involved the renovation of a run-down Thornley Manor which according to the plot was valued at £180,000. Was this a real location? What is it worth now? Answer. The first series of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet followed the misadventures of a bunch of building labourers in Germany. Two years after it had worked it’s magic on ITV, the show was revamped, bringing the lads back to the UK. Dennis, Oz, Neville, Barry, Bomber, Moxey and Wayne were reunited to renovate a stately mansion in Derbyshire called Thornley Manor for a big time gangster by the name of Ally Fraser. As usual the lads find themselves embroiled in numerous shady dealings. Within a few episodes, they had headed off to Spain to graft for the remainder of the series in the Mediterranean sun .The sprawling mansion used to depict Thornley Manor was Beesthorpe Hall in Caunton, Nottinghamshire. Answer. Things have certainly moved in since 1985, when the fictional Thornley Manor was valued at £180,000. Today its real-life equivalent, Beesthorpe Hall near Newark, would go on the market for £2 million.
