A rare Grade II listed barn conversion has come up for sale in Lavenham, one of the best-preserved medieval villages in the country - and frequently a star of the silver screen.

Lavenham has appeared in a number of films and television shows but one of its most recent roles was in 2010, when it was used as a location for the filming of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The village was transformed into Godric's Hollow, a fictional town where Harry lived with his parents. The nearby Guildhall was also used, providing the setting for his parents' derelict house.
