The New Wayne Manor?

It seems as if Chris Nolan has found his Wayne Manor. All signs point to Wollaton Hall in Nottingham, UK being used as Wayne Manor in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. According to MY NOTTINGHAM, the mansion will be closed to the public from June 20th to July 6th "in order to enable a film to have exclusive access to the site." Mentmore Towers -- used as Wayne Manor in BATMAN BEGINS -- is a near replica of Wollaton Hall.

Also, Osterley Park in West London is going to be used for Wayne Manor interiors. Back in March, BOF was the first to report that Team Nolan had scouted the mansion. Then on May 28th, the mansion's official site reported that it would be closed to the public for "private hire" in mid-June. I'm guessing that both locales will combine to give us the rebuilt Wayne Manor. (Thanks to "Rashad" for the heads up!)
